Monster Eyes

Halloween is my favorite holiday!!! I love to go to parties, I love the autumn sights and smells!! Caramel apples, popcorn balls, candy, costumes, falling leaves, all the colors!!! It is all my favorite stuff!! I had a lot of requests on the Cricut message board to post this with the recipe so here it is.
Here is the recipe for Monster Eyes
Ingredients: Wax Paper,
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 (21 oz) ButterFinger candy bar, finely chopped or crushed
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 cup M&M's or Reece Piecies
1 small tube red decorator icing
and a wooden pick or skewer for dipping.
Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper. Beat peanut butter & butter/margarine in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture holds together and is moistened. Stir in Chopped butterfinger. Shape into 1" eyeballs. Place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 1 hour. Melt morsels and shortening in a large uncovered microwave safe bowl on medium high power for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir. If necessary, continue microwaving at 10-15 second intervals until melted and smooth. Remove one sheet of eyeballs and dip one eyeball at a time using a wood pick or skewer. Shake off extra chocolate and return to baking sheet. Gently press 1 M&M or Reece Pieces candy to make the pupil of the eye. Repeat procedure with all remaining eyeballs on sheet. Refrigerate until coating is set. Then do other tray. Before serving, pipe decorator icing around eyeballs to create bloodshot markings. Store in covered container in freezer. Best served cold.
These are so yummy. You can make them for christmas too with dark chocolate chips. and no eyeball markings!! haha. Thanks for looking and please leave comments if you can!!! Lottsa Love, MoJo

Thank you for sharing the recipe for this. I think this maybe what I do for work this year. The recipe card is so cute. I have all of the cartridges so I may scraplift this idea to have at work so everyone knows what is in the eyeballs.
