Halloween Eyeball Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
12 ounces white dipping chocolate
1/2 cup mini chocolate chip
blue food coloring


Cream the butter and peanut butter together.

Beat in the vanilla and sugar.

Chill for 1/2 hour.

Roll into small balls, chill on wax paper for another 1/2 hour.

In a microwave, melt the white dipping chocolate.

Using two spoons dip the eyeballs into the white chocolate.

Let cool on waxed paper until firm. Chilling will speed up the process.

Pour a drop or two of blue food coloring into the remaining melted chocolate.

Make a round iris on the eyeball, and immediately press a miniature chocolate chip in the center for a pupil, doing 5 at at time.

For the bloodshot effect, dip the tiny end of a toothpick in red food colouring and squiggle the lines from the pupil outward, but not quite to the edges of the ball.

These are quite tasty--considering how creepy they are.

Note: White dipping chocolate is also known as white bark.
