More About This Recipe

  • Halloween is in the air and my little spooks and goblins have been lookin' for fun and scary treats...

    These Peanut Butter Truffle Eyeball Suckers were a huge hit! Not only do they look great, they taste fabulous thanks to the addition of crushed Reese's Puffs Cereal.

    I guarantee these will be gobbled up before you can give them a second "glance"! ;)

    Mix up the dough ingredients, roll into 1" balls and place on wax paper.

    Now, you can make these eyeballs stand-alone or put them on sucker sticks. We like making them into suckers, it's easier for the kids to dip them and they're fun to eat! If making suckers, dip each stick in a little bit of melted white candy melts and push one into each peanut butter ball. Place in fridge for about 5 minutes to harden. (Tip: put your wax paper on a cookie sheet, then it's easy to transfer your treats to/from the fridge!)

    Dip each ball into melted White candy melts and set on wax paper to harden (about 5 minutes). When set, dip one side into melted red candy melts. Using a toothpick, drizzle some extra red around the edges to look like the eyes are "bloodshot". Press one chocolate chip, pointed side down, into the center and let set completely.

    Here's an example of the "bloodshot" eyes. My kids loved doing this part!

How to Make Spooky Tuffle Eyeball Halloween Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a spooky treat to make this Halloween, look no further than the Truffle Eyeball. Lyndsy McDonald, winner of Halloween Baking Championship, Season 4, nestles the devilish creation on top of raspberry “blood” to add some ghoulish fun to her Halloween cupcakes. Grab a box of cupcake mix and try them out for yourself — they’re a scary good way to give your trick-or-treaters an eyeful this year. And be sure to watch the newest season of Halloween Baking Championship on Mondays at 9|8c. Happy baking!

Truffle Eyeballs: Roll 12 small pieces of white fondant into pea-size balls flatten into thin rounds. Dampen one side of each with water and stick onto a white chocolate truffle. Mix green gel food coloring with a few drops of water paint the fondant. Paint a dot with black gel food coloring for the pupil.

Raspberry Blood: Bring 3 cups raspberries, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil, then simmer until soft, 8 minutes. Return to a boil, whisk in 1 1/2 teaspoons pectin and boil 1 minute, whisking. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and whisk in a few drops of red food coloring. Let cool completely.


Halloween: Celebrating All Things Spooky

Halloween is fast approaching and already there are heaps of stores stocking up on candies, while a whole lot of frightfully good activities are being lined up to give everyone the shivers. Pumpkin carving, haunted house scares, costume shopping — this celebration of all things eerie sure is a mixed bag of magic and mystery!

A night of spooks?

The U.S. alone is dotted with places that put fresh twist on all things Halloween. There’s Salem (MA) and their to-die-for parties, Madison (WI) and their infamously wild Freakfest, New Orleans and their penchant for vampire balls, Keene (NH) and their Pumpkin Fest, and Anoka (MN) and their city-wide parades. Halloween, however, is never just about kids trick-or-treating in scary costumes it’s this phenomenon that embraces a plethora of customs celebrated from different stretches of the globe.

Ireland. If there’s one place that knows the roots of Halloween by heart, it’s Ireland. Originally known as Samhain Night, this festival indicates the start of the darker half of the year. As a celebration, they dedicate five full days to spooky carnivals — with heaps of dancing and a long string of family events (snap apples, anyone?), ghost tours, haunted house events, and horror film viewing.

Mexico. Halloween, among many Spanish countries, is known as El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). Deeply rooted in spiritual beliefs, this 3-day celebration commemorates the dearly departed and the continuity of life. It’s also the
time of the year when monarch butterflies come back from the north and are believed to bear the spirits of the deceased. Families set up altars, decorate them with flowers and sugar skulls, and burn incense.

China and Japan. Unlike the usual Halloween celebrations, China’s Teng Chieh honors lost loved ones in a religious manner: they place food and water in front of family members’ photos and set bonfires alight to symbolize lighting the paths for spirits wandering the earth on the eve of the festival. Similarly, Japan’s Obon Festival dedicates festivities to the spirits of their ancestors by hanging bright red lanterns everywhere.

Let’s talk food.

One of the good things about Halloween is, whatever approach you pick — creepy or cute or a little bit of both — you will never run out of creative ideas to enchant neighbors or passers-by. And you know what’s even better? The same goes for Halloween party food ideas and drinks.

When hosting Halloween parties, you’re going to want anything but boring. You want the best Halloween party food ideas. Why whip up a normal cake when you can serve Frankenstein Pudding, Spooky Fun Fruit Tray, Eyeball Cake Balls, or Dexter Blood Splatter Cupcakes? And why settle for biscuits when you can kick things up a notch with Band-aid Cookies, Dracula’s Dentures, Carrot Finger Dip, and Mummy Dogs? Because, really, this is that one time of the year to make or eat any of these with passion and not be called a freak!

Now while Halloween focuses on kids, there are always adults around — and all that trick-or-treating sure can make one hungry! And so instead of diving right into sugar-loaded snacks, grab some popcorn, like Charlie’s Truffled Popcorn– they contain 3.5 grams of fiber — and munch on it while watching your favourite scary movies. Or if you’re craving more spirited snacks, prepare grilled cheese sandwiches and cut them into Jack-O’-Lanterns. Pretty cool, huh? The key is to balance out the sweets!

With only a few more days until Halloween, it’s time to get busy noting down the most exciting festivities in town and planning your very own party menu. Hop over to this page for some quick and easy-to-follow recipes or grab some of my truffled goods to get started — and watch the video below to learn more about how truffles can improve your halloween treats!

How to make Caramel for Popcorn

  • Use brown sugar to get a great caramel. When boiling it will get an even darker color.
  • I used some deep red food coloring to give the eyeballs a bloodshot look. These popcorn balls would be good for any occasion, you can just change the color you use.
  • Use gummy eyeballs and sugar eyeballs to make them creepy.
  • The sugar caramel is really hot so you&rsquoll want to let them cool a little bit before trying to form them
  • Be sure and let them sit for at least 30 minutes. The sugar will get the most wonderful texture and then the popcorn ball will stay together when you eat it.
  • Don&rsquot like popcorn balls&hellip this recipe is great for just plain caramel popcorn. You can sprinkle on festive sprinkles or just put it in a container and add Halloween treats like I did with the marshmallow sugar skulls!

I&rsquom was thrilled to use products in this post specifically from the following sponsor&rsquos Dixie Crystals, Adam&rsquos Extract, Wilton, and Treat Street USA.

  • Dixie Crystals &ndash Brown Sugar
  • Adams Extract Vanilla (I also made a batch with the cherry extract and OMG!! They were fantastic! )
  • Wilton &ndash Halloween eyes and sprinkles
  • Treat Street USA &ndash gummy eyeballs and Skull Marshmallows

  • fresh mozzarella balls, cut in half
  • small black olives, cut into slices
  • cut up peppers, about 1/2 cup, any colors
  • ketchup for drizzling

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, have a casserole or baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cook pasta to al dente. Try not to over cook and make too soft. Drain and pour into casserole dish.
  3. Pour sauce over pasta and gently mix in.
  4. Microwave the meatballs just until they are not frozen solid and cut up 6 of them into quarters and mix into pasta.
  5. Toss in the parmesan and grated cheddar along with the garlic powder. Mix gently. Now, mix in the cut up peppers.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes until hot. You will probably see some bubbling. Take out, let sit on the counter for a few minutes.
  7. Place the cheese halves on top of each meatball then the olive. Now you can drizzle the ketchup around the cheese balls.

Enjoy the spooky deliciousness!


Coco-Choco Halloween Truffles!: Spiders, Mini Bats and Monster Eyeballs

Halloween was a BIG deal at my house growing up. My mom would throw the most famous Halloween parties in our building, and all the kids from my class and the neighbours would attend. We would cover the house in cobwebs, have spooky treats, and my mom would sneak off at just the right moment, change into a very scary witch (to the point of being unrecognizable), and would then read the kids' fortunes. All of which were eerily accurate since she had called all their parents a week before, to ask about what was going on in their lives.

Needless to say, I love Halloween! The best part being the candy overdose of course, and the costumes.

Today, as a special treat and specially made for our friends at Vegan Outreach, we're making scary but cute Halloween truffles. I call them coco-choco spiders, mini bats and monster eyeballs, and they're the kind of decorated treat that anyone can do, no need to be a master pastry chef yielding a pastry bag or weird looking spatulas.

Did I mention that these are like little clouds of chocolatey, coconutty heaven? Yeah.


Trouble Shooting

Aka, the mistakes I made so you don&rsquot have to.

I had to make 2 batches of Halloween Truffles in September.. The first batch was great, perfectly spooky. Then I made the mistake of pulling them out of the fridge and taking them to my &lsquostudio&rsquo to photograph. They immediately started sweating to the point that the pupils were bleeding.

Chances are you&rsquoll be serving these in October when it&rsquos not 89 degrees outside but if you put them in the fridge be careful pulling them out into the heat.

The other issue I had was with the red candy melts. Being the genius I am I tried to mix the coconut oil and cangy melts in the piping bag. You can&rsquot. Don&rsquot even try. Mix them up in a small bowl and then pour it into the piping bag.

My last tip is to do the blood drip and then immediately add the eyeball. If you don&rsquot the red starts to sit and you&rsquoll get a sort of crunchy looking border around the eyeball.

If you&rsquore looking for slightly less gory version of this treat check out this recipe for Blood Shot Eyeball Truffles from Mom Loves Baking. All the eyeball, none of the drippy blood 😉
