These tasty little morsels add a nice amount of gruesome to your Halloween meal. They are simply Oreo truffles, dipped in melted almond bark. I “forked” mine to make them even spookier. Metal forks would look even better.
After dipping them I used some red food coloring on a paint brush to make the veins. I will say it didn’t stick well or dry so next time I would make a little powdered sugar glaze with red food coloring and use that instead. Or, you could use one of those food writer pens.
The iris is a smashed skittle, stuck on with some melted white chocolate (or use some vanilla frosting in a pastry bag) and then there is dark chocolate frosting piped into the center For the pupil.
(yield: about 50 balls)
- 16 oz. package of Oreos, finely crushed (use food processor if you have one)
- 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temp
- 16 oz. almond bark or white chocolate, melted
Mix cream cheese with finely crushed Oreos. Roll into eyeball sized balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and stick a fork in each ball. Immediately dip in melted white chocolate, shaking off excess. Place back on baking sheet and allow to harden, which should be almost instant due to cold temp of balls.
Once cooled and hardened, decorate to look like eyeballs.
I used a bucket of wheat to stand mine up in. Rice would work as well.
