Organic Monster Eyeballs

This is a very simple recipe. My son brought a Halloween cookbook home from the library last week so we could make some treats. I adapted this from a recipe in that book. Easy, fun, the kids love to roll and dip these!!!

Blend following ingredients together well until nice and creamy. Roll into 1” balls and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour:
1 C. Organic Creamy Peanut Butter 
4 T. Organic Butter at Room Temperature
2 C. Organic Powdered Sugar
1 t. Organic Vanilla Extract

Melt the following in a double boiler until melted, stir often.
1 C. Chocolate Chips (I love Enjoy Life® brand)
Remove chilled balls and dip in melted chocolate. I used a fondue stick and rocked the ball side to side to leave an uncovered spot on the top. Place in a pan on wax paper. Place eyeball colored candy on the part not covered by chocolate and press. But gently, or you’ll crack the ball. I used Wonka® Mini Chewy SweeTarts®, but you could also use something like M&M’s® MINIS®. It just needs to be small enough to fit in the space. Place back in the frig for a couple hours to make sure the chocolate hardens nicely.
Makes approximately 40 eyeballs.
