Store Locator

Ingredients:

  • Wax paper
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (not all-natural)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 (2.1 oz.) NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bar, finely chopped
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup (1.5 oz.) NESTLÉ RAISINETS Milk Chocolate-Covered Raisins
  • 1 small tube red decorator icing
  • Wooden pick or skewer for dipping

Directions:

LINE 2 baking sheets with wax paper.

BEAT peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar until mixture holds together and is moistened. Stir in chopped Butterfinger. Shape into 1-inch "eyeballs." Place on prepared baking sheets. Freeze for 1 hour.

MELT morsels and shortening in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute 30 seconds; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Remove one baking sheet of frozen "eyeballs" from freezer (keep other sheet in freezer until ready to use).

DIP one "eyeball" into melted morsel mixture using a wooden pick or skewer. Shake off excess and return to baking sheet. Gently press 1 Raisinet on top of "eyeball" to make a "pupil." Repeat procedure with remaining "eyeballs" on baking sheet. Refigerate until coating is set. Repeat with remaining sheet of "eyeballs" and coating. You may find it necessary to reheat morsel mixture before dipping second batch. Before serving, pipe decorator icing around eyeballs to create bloodshot markings. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Best served cold.

    Sooooooo Goooood!!

    Brooke Small from Virginia

    These were a hit at our party. I thought they were easy to make. I did substitute butterfingers for snickers and used m&m's instead of rasinettes. They looked awesome!!

    Michele Michele from NORTH LIBERTY, IA

    I made these for my daughters preschool class. They were a huge hit. She begs for me to make them any time I make treats, with different decoration for different occasions. I'm going to try some with a different center to take for kids who can't have peanuts, so they can enjoy too!

    Not just for eyeballs

    Linda Carton from ATKINSON, IL

    I love this recipe. I make them at Halloween as eyeballs. Then at Christmas leave them plain for snowballs. Easter finds the white chocolate colored like easter eggs. Fourth of July they become a flag.

    THIS WAS SO EASY AND A LOT OF FUN TO MAKE.

    Totally Awesome!

    TIFFANY SLATTERY from Santa Barbara CA

    I made these with my 3 year old son. We used the chocolate peanut butter Bbs instead of the butterfinger ones since we couldn't find them. They were super easy and amazingly delicious and rich! I hope to make little "snowballs" for Christmas time and leave off the bbs or maybe use holiday candy coated chocolates instead. Everyone that had them loved them and they all want me to make more!

  •  Star(s)

    awesome eyeballs!

    Christan Drenthe from ware, MA

    The eyeballs were so easy to make and a lot of fun. I couldn't find the butterfinger bb's so I used peanut butter candy coated chocolates. Which gives you different eye colors. Everyone loves them. a bunch of people asked for the recipe. I sent them here.

  •  Star(s)

    Butterfinger 'eyeballs'

    Dianne Gatzke from Sheboygan Falls, WI

    What a great,fun project for me and my 4 year old grandson. What he didn't eat, he took home for a treat to share with his daycare friends. We used raisins to decorate the eyeballs because I could not find the Butterfinger BB's in my area grocery stores. I will definitely make these again.

    Butterfinger Eyeballs

    Susan Best from Dearborn Heights, MI

    Added further detail by dipping cooled (white chocolate coated) eyeballs into tinted white chocolate for pupil before adding BB for iris. Mixed them on a tray with gummy worms and spiders. Thanks for the great Halloween snack!

  •  Star(s)

    wonderful eyeballs!

    Colleen Killilea from Williamsburg, VA

    My daughter and I made these for a school project. She had to create her own business, and her's was a bakery, so she took samples into school. Her samples, the eyeballs, were a hit!

    eyeball fun

    LeJuen Goss from PALMYRA, PA

    My sister's granddaughter and I now have a tradition.. we make Halloween treats together.. this was our first one we had made, and she wants a repeat and addition this year. It is so much fun to "gross out" the family and be yummy at the same time. Thanks for helping to make a memory! :)

  •  Star(s)

    good but I modified my recipe

    Tina OBrien from LUDINGTON, MI

    This was a great cookie, however I made mine a little different. I did not put the butterfinger bites in mine I only used the peanutbutter and powedered sugar, then I used mini candy coated chocolates to make different colored eyes. the kids thought it was so cool to pick the same eye color as thier own. over all it was a great hit. thanks,

    Very Good

    Faith Bennewate from MINOOKA, IL

    I made these for my son's daycare and I don't know who like them more, the kids or the teachers! It wasn't Halloween when I made them so they weren't decorated, but nobody semmed to mind!!

  •  Star(s)

    Not as Easy as it sounded

    JESSICA NOXON from NORTHLAKE, IL

    Was a good recipe, but not as easy to make as it sounded. I too had trouble covering them with the white chocolate. Perhaps something different. I also had a hard time finding the Butterfinger BB's at the store. I would probably give them a second try because I think the kids would like them.

    People are still asking me it I can make these change with the season! The are easy and delicous! Although I found it easier to use the white bark coating instead of white chocolate.
