Ewww! Gross. A bloody eyeball on a fork. Isn’t it just the perfect snack for Halloween? I wish I’d seen these when my nephews were younger because I think they would have loved them. I had other more complicated recipes in mind but I didn’t have the time or energy to actually try them out. This one is funny and easy and for the right audience, it’s a winner.
I first saw them here at I Sing in the Kitchen, a fun blog I found that is by a “music obsessed cooking freak”. Since then I’ve seen them all over the place with many variations. These are something you assemble rather than cook.
Bloody Eyeballs on a Fork
Adapted from I Sing in the Kitchen
Powdered sugar donut holes or small donuts (as in photos)
Red Decorating Gel – 1 tube was enough for about 6 eyeballs so get plenty, (or seedless red raspberry jelly in a baggie with the corner snipped off)
Edible black marker (I got a box with 5 colors of edible markers at Jo-Ann’s)
Forks (I used plastic as these were being given away)
Eat a powdered sugar donut. Or three.
Use edible black marker to draw pupils on M&M’s.
Poke fork into donut hole or small donut.
Squirt a little red gel into center and put the pupil in place.
Draw squiggly lines for veins and a nice bit of blood around the tines of the fork.
Disgusting. Kids will love them.
Thank you to Ariel for playing along. I hope your brothers enjoy their treat!
