Need a cute, yet spooky Halloween treat? Look no further! Try these adorably eerie eyeballs made from oreo truffle balls.
I feel this pressure to come up with awesome Halloween themed food. However, I have discovered something about myself. I do not like food that is made to look gory, or gross out, or just plain icky. I used to when I was younger, but now food made to look, I don’t know, like the insides of a person just start that stomach churning gag process. I can barely handle looking at it much less make it or even eat it. So, these eerie eyeballs are as close to “halloween-y” food as I’m going to get. I do think they turned out pretty cute! I opted for green eye-veins instead of red, you know the whole gagging thing. The eyes on the tops are candy eyes I purchased from a kitchen/cooking store. They were simple enough for my 3 year to really help with, too! He was quite pleased with that. My older kids even thought they were pretty cool.
So the insides of these eerie eyeballs are Oreo truffle balls. If you’ve never made oreo truffle balls before don’t worry they are super easy. Just completely crush 36 regular oreos, cream filling and all, into fine crumbs. Mix the crumbs well with 8 oz of cream cheese. Scoop out tablespoon size globs and roll them in your hands into balls. Try to get 36 oreos balls out of a batch. I put the rolled balls onto a wax paper lined baking dish and placed them in the freezer for 15 minutes while I melted the almond bark and candy melts.
I only used about 1/2 of a package of vanilla almond bark to coat these and a small handful of the green candy melts. I melted the green candy melts and poured it into a plastic squeeze bottle. It was easier to squirt the green candy than drizzle it. I added the green veins immediately after dipping the oreo balls in the almond bark and then immediately added an eye to the top. After the the candy coating has hardened, serve or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
