Loco Kids :: Halloween Bloody Eyeballs Dessert Recipe

Seriously, the Halloween dessert goriness never ends; I’m loving every minute of it.  I am also constantly amazed at the creativity so many bloggers exhibit.

Today’s Bloody Eyeballs recipe comes from the tremendously talented Lindsay Ann from the Dollhouse Bake Shoppe (a great site for inspiration, cake baking and decorating supplies) and also Season 1 Winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.

What little monster won’t love popping these delicious bloody eyeballs into their mouth? 

You will need

  • Powdered donut holes
  • M&M’s
  • Black edible marker or food coloring
  • Red seedless jelly (I used raspberry)
  • Forks


Using a black edible marker or black food coloring and a paint brush, add pupils to your “iris” M&M’s.

Roll your donut hole in extra powdered sugar, to get them really white, if needed. Stab your eyeballs with a fork. If desired, fill the center of your donut holes with “blood” jelly (I used the cupcake filling tip, but you can also use the end of a wooden spoon and push it into the donut, creating a well, and spoon in jelly). I used raspberry because it had a deeper red color than the strawberry, for a spookier effect.

Spoon some jelly into the corner of a plastic sandwich bag. Twist the bag around the top of the jelly, creating a bulge. Snip a very tiny hole off of the corner of the bag. Place your thumb and index finger on top of the twist and apply steady pressure to pipe bloody veins on your eyeball, moving from the center, outward.

Don’t forget to squeeze some jelly on the fork, around the base of the donut too.

Take a bite and enjoy!
