I LOVE Halloween. It’s a great holiday… no presents to deal with, free candy, and I get to play with food! The kids do get a little nervous around here… some things come out looking a little spooky… Like this Fun EyeBall Cake Pops RECIPE!
But just think of the fun you can have!
When was the last time someone offered you an eyeball as a treat? These Cake Pop Eye Balls for Halloween are red velvet cake balls covered in white chocolate, then painted to look like eyes. You can paint the outside to be as gruesome as you can stand. Bite into the hard outer shell, and you get the sweet, chocolatey, red velvet cake….yum…. and ICK!
These cake balls are easy to make, and fun to decorate. I got all the kids involved.
And they are perfect for Halloween Parties, or whenever you feel like eating Eye Balls.
