halloween chocolate eyeballs


Halloween chocolate eyeballs

Freshly gauged eyeballs in red slime! Perfect for Halloween breakfast - or dessert.

They are really easy and fun to make, and you don't have to be very artistic to make them lifelike - or rather deathlike... But this recipe is not just crudely melted and shaped white chocolate - it's actually the most delicious white truffle recipe so chalk it up for the other 364 days of the year!

Tags: halloween


  • 200g (7oz.) white cooking chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 80g (1/3 cup) double cream
  • 1 tsp butter
  • For decoration:
  • green and blue writing icing gels
  • black chocolate buttons
  • corn syrup
  • red food colouring


Halloween eyeballs

Break up the chocolate into pieces as small as possible. Put the cream and butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds until it boils vigorously.  Immediately add the chocolate and leave to stand (in the microwave) for a minute or two. Whisk together into smooth ganache. Chill for at least a couple of hours or overnight.

Scoop the ganache with a teaspoon and roll into balls, the size of an eyeball of course.

Chocolate truffles

Paint green and blue iris on each eyeball with the icing gel and stick a chocolate button in the middle for a pupil.

Drop the red food colouring into a small quantity of corn syrup until it’s sufficiently bloody. Draw blood vessels on the eyeballs with a toothpick dipped in the red syrup (or use an edible ink pen if you have one and it works well on chocolate).

Stick the eyeballs on toothpicks skewered into an apple or something similar and chill to dry.
