Eyeball Cookies

All eyes will definitely be on these adorable cookies when they're set on any buffet table. I created them for my son's kindergarten class for Halloween. —Sherry Lee, Columbus, Ohio
  • Total Time

  • Makes
    20-25 servings


  • 5 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped, divided
  • 20 to 25 vanilla wafers
  • Paste food coloring
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • In a microwave, melt 4 ounces of white chocolate; stir until smooth. Dip vanilla wafers in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until set.
  • Melt remaining white chocolate; stir until smooth. Tint as desired. Spread a small amount onto the center of each cookie; place a chocolate chip in the center.

    I would buy double the amount of the baking chocolate. Also used blue tube frosting instead of buying the blue paste.

    Made these for a Halloween party with the help of my two children (2yrs and 3yrs old). Tasted great and kids loved the look of them.
