"These were fun! We didn't have the jelly or nectar, so we used apricot preserves and finely-chopped jalapenos and several drops of green food coloring. We enhanced each eyeball by piping on ketchup veins and then added an olive slice for the eye. A dot of mustard for the pupil and a toothpick shoved into each eye added the final touch of grotesque! Guests loved them!"
