Peanut Butter "eye"ball Recipe - My favorite treat 2010

"If human eyeballs could taste this good, we'd all be blind"

Here is how to make edible peanut butter eyeballs:

1/2 C. peanut butter
3 T. butter, softened
1 C. sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

6 oz. white chocolate candy coating
MnM's  and/or blue, red and black decorator gel icing

In a mixing bowl stir together peanut butter and butter. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, stirring until combined.

Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper. Let stand in fridge or freezer about 20 minutes or until dry.
In a small saucepan melt chocolate over low heat. Dip balls, one at a time, into coating. Let excess coating drip off peanut butter balls.
Place on waxed paper. 
Immediately press a candy-coated chocolate piece into center of each peanut butter ball. (great if a kid helps) If you can, put the red food gel on a toothpick and make the lines in the chocolate BEFORE it is dry. Let stand until coating is firm. 
If you can't add the red to the wet chocolate before it is dry,  then add a dot of black gel to the center of candy pieces for pupils. Drizzle red gel onto balls for bloodshot eyes afterwards. Makes about 20 eyeballs so triple the recipe.
