Halloween just wouldn’t be complete without bloodshot eyeballs!
Today’s project is about improvising or substituting. Sometimes we can’t find what we need … or we run out of supplies. Why not just make do? As the old saying goes … necessity is the mother of invention. When I started making these eyeballs, I was going to use the large round flat sprinkles … but they are not always easy to find. So … why not M&Ms or Skittles. I like to dip my marshmallows in chocolate or candy melts because it seals them and keeps them fresh. But there is no reason that you couldn’t make the eyeballs without dipping them.
This is what I used …
- large marshmallows
- white candy melts
- lollipop sticks
- black and red edible markers
- large round flat sprinkles (candy confetti)
Dip the marshmallows in the melted chocolate and tap off the excess chocolate …
Place the marshmallows in styrofoam or a handy-dandy pop holder (that I made from a dollar store find) … and pop them in the fridge to harden up. Did you notice that made a few with two eyeballs?
Using the red marker, make bloodshot lines (is that what they are called?) Sometimes the markers get a coating from the chocolate … I just wipe it on a paper towel to clean it …
Use some melted chocolate to “glue” the sprinkle or M&M on the eyeball …
Use the black marker to make the pupil … (the green ones are M&M’s)
I hope you have fun making these eyeballs! I’ll be keeping my marshmallow eye on you … no, not really.
