Halloween Eyeballs

OK. So who doesn't like to eat yummy treats on Halloween? I know I do, especially when it is fun making them. Well, Jake and I love to make Halloween Eyeballs. Yep, they look like bloodshot eyeballs. And, they are super easy to make (oh, and delicious!).In the photo, they are not quite set, so after about a half an hour in the freezer, they will be ready to serve.
Here is the recipe:
1/2 C butter
1 1/2 C peanut butter
2 C confectioner's sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
white melting chocolate
crisco
chocolate chips
red gel

In a medium bowl, mix the butter, peanut butter, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla. Form into balls. Place on wax paper and put in freezer for at least 1/2 hour to firm. In small saucepan, mix about 1 TBSP Crisco with white melting chocolate over low heat. Stir constantly and until smooth. With a toothpick, dip the balls into th echocolate to coat. Place on wax paper. Remove toothpick and insert upside down chocolate hip into the hole form the toothpick. After they set a bit, make squiggly lines going from the chocolate chip to make the eyeballs look bloodshot. Place back into freezer to set. After they are set, take a wet paper towel and smooth out the edges from the white chocolate.

To serve, cover a plate with lettuce and place eyeballs on them. Enjoy!
