Halloween Treat! Blood Shot Eyes!

I love Halloween ( well, it is my birthday!)! But seriously, I love the creepy things and the fun creative ideas out there! And who doesn't love the costumes?!? I found this idea a few years ago in a Halloween cookbook, but tore the recipe out so I'm not sure of the exact resource. It's easy to put together and fun to eat! I bagged up a few, added a cute little tag and gave to some friends when we went to a pumpkin picking bonfire on Sunday. Try them out this Halloween!


What you need:
1 package of plain donut holes
1 tub of vanilla frosting
1 tube of mini m-n-m's
1 tube of red writing gel

Prepare a baking sheet or working surface with wax paper. Put about 1/2 of the vanilla frosting in a bowl and microwave it for 15-25 seconds until it is smooth and thin. Dip the donut hole in the frosting (I used a toothpick to do this step), and place on the wax paper.

I dipped about 3 donut holes, stopped and put 1 m-n-m eye in the center of the donut hole before the frosting had time to set. Continue until all donuts have been dipped and eyes have been placed.
Next, put in the frig or freezer for about 10 minutes to allow the frosting to firm up. Then snip off the end of the red gel (I cut mine too far done and it was a thicker line than I wanted, but oh well!) and drizzle on the blood shot eye look.














Package them up to give to your neighbors or friends!















Happy Haunting!
