How to Make Oreo Halloween Eyeballs

Oreo Halloween Eyeball Ingredients:

1 (15.35 ounce) package Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
1 (12 ounce) package white candy melts wafers
1 (12 ounce) package red candy melts wafers
Spree
Brown mini M&M candies

Instructions:

1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
2. Melt white candy coating according to package directions. If the candy is too thick to pour, add 1 teaspoon coconut oil or vegetable shortening. Stir well. Do not add water. You can add up to 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per bag of candy wafers.
3. Dip each cookie into candy melts. Remove cookie, tapping gently against the side of the bowl, allowing excess candy to return to the bowl. If air bubbles form, pop them with a toothpick. Place the cookie onto the waxed paper.

4. Immediately press Spree candy into the middle of the cookie. Allow these Halloween Oreo cookies to set completely before proceeding to the next step.

5. Melt red candy coating according to package directions. If the candy is too thick to pour, add 1 teaspoon coconut oil or vegetable shortening. Stir well. Do not add water. You can add up to 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per bag of candy wafers.

6. Transfer red candy coating to a piping bag with a tiny tip for piping or a sandwich bag with the corner barely snipped. Draw veins from the edge of the Spree candy to the outer edge of the cookie using a squiggling motion.

7. Use a toothpick to apply a small amount of candy coating to an M&M and place in the middle of the Spree to finish making the candy eyeballs.

8. Allow cookie to set completely at room temperature or refrigerate for faster results. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
