These are a great tasting snack that look great as a spooky Halloween nibble or as 'Mad-Eye Moodys' magic eye at a Harry Potter party.


Makes: 30 eye balls

  • 1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 375g white chocolate, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 drops blue food colouring
  • 1/2 cup miniature cooking chocolate chips
  • red food colouring (optional)

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:1hour30min chilling  ›  Ready in:2hours 

  1. Beat the peanut butter and butter with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the sugar and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll chilled dough into small eyeball-sized balls and place on 2 baking trays lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
  2. Melt the white chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or the chocolate will scorch.
  3. Dip each eyeball into the white chocolate then transfer to the waxed paper until the chocolate has set. You can chill them in the refrigerator.
  4. Stir a few drops of blue food colouring into the remaining melted white chocolate. Make a round "iris" on the top of the cooled eyeball and press a mini chocolate chip in the centre for a "pupil." For an extra spooky bloodshot eyeballs take a toothpick dipped in red food colouring and make squiggly lines on the eye.
