Create a memorable Halloween with this fun recipe for BUTTERFINGER® Eyeballs. With the delicious taste of creamy peanut butter dipped in melted, white morsels, as well as RAISINETS® candy “pupils” and gooey red “bloodshot” markings, these tricky treats create an eye-popping experience for all to enjoy.
What you need
  • Wax paper
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter (not all-natural)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 (2.1 oz.) NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bar, finely chopped
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup (1.5 oz.) of NESTLÉ RAISINETS Milk Chocolate-Covered Raisins
  • 1 small tube red decorator icing
  • Wooden pick or skewer for dipping


How to do it
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.
