Learn how easy it is to make edible googly eyes
Last week I posted my recipe for spooky peanut butter and chocolate spider cookies, as a great treat for this Halloween!
Have you tried them yet?!? I have to say, if you taste them once, you’ll be baking them again! I’m down to my third batch so far, and I really need to stop. But I guess, when it’s comes to chocolate and peanut butter, I simply can’t control myself :)
Today I want to show you how you can still make cute and fun Halloween snacks, but in a super healthy treat. All you need are these googly eyes and bit of creativity.
Look at these!
You can now turn any healthy and boring snacks into fun little characters.
Googly eyes are perfect for any Halloween treats but not only. They make great table decoration and fun snacks for any kids’ party or lunch box, any time of the year.
These are so fun and quite easy to make … and a lot cheaper than store bought googly eyes. You can make them in any size and shape.
I certainly had so much fun whipping these up, decorating fruit and veggies and taking pictures. Once you make them once, you can store in a little jar and have them ready for the next occasion.
This recipe for royal icing doesn’t use raw egg whites nor meringue powder. Just powdered sugar, hot water, and mini chocolate chip for the middle of the eye. I flavored mine with a few drops of almond extract, so they don’t taste just like sugar. But you can use your favorite aroma. Make sure the extract doesn’t have a color (like brownish of the vanilla extract) or your eyes won’t turn as white.
One recommendation, make sure you start with a super thick paste-like icing, and add little sips of water only until you can mix it. Add more sugar if the icing ends up too thin. You can see how thick is mine in the following video.
