Halloween Desserts Don't Get Much Easier to Make Than These Oreo Eyeballs

Just because you're time-strapped doesn't mean you have to miss out on making a fun and festive Halloween dessert. Unlike most cookies, cupcakes, and other treats, there's no baking involved; rather, it's more of an assembly job.

All you need are Oreos, Lifesaver Gummies, chocolate chips, and candy melts (these are stocked at many supermarkets and are also available online), a smidgen of hand-eye coordination, and about 20-30 minutes of your time. Thanks to its ease, this is a great recipe to make with kids; older children can pipe on the candy melt blood vessels, younger children can add the gummies and chocolate chips.

The results are pretty darn cute, with just enough creepiness to make them appropriate for the ghoulish holiday.

Oreo Eyeballs

I couldn't find red candy melts, so I tinted white candy melts with gel food coloring (liquid food coloring isn't strongly pigmented enough). You may need a few more Oreos than 12, as they may not all twist apart cleanly.

Easy Oreo Eyeballs Recipe


  1. 12 Oreos
  2. 1/4 cup red candy melts
  3. 12 Lifesaver Gummies
  4. 12 chocolate chips


  1. Carefully twist off the tops of the Oreos, reserving the frostingless tops for another use.
  2. Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the package. Transfer the melted candy melts to a piping bag fit with a narrow piping tip; alternatively, snip a very small hole in the piping bag.
  3. Pipe 5-6 squiggly lines on each Oreo half to represent blood vessels. Add a gummy to each Oreo half to represent the iris, nestling an upside-down chocolate chip in each gummy to represent the pupil.
  4. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, or until the candy melts harden.
