Halloween Eyeballs

     Makes 10

  • 100g plain sponge cake
  • 100g cookies/biscuits
  • 100g milk chocolate, melted
  • 200g white chocolate, melted
  • 10 sticks/wooden skewers
  • Smarties and icing pens
  • Half a butternut squash/small pumpkin


  1. Put cake, cookies and melted milk chocolate into a processor and whizz to combine.
  2. Using your hands, roll into 10 balls and chill for 2 hours, until really firm.
  3. Push a stick into each ball and spoon the white chocolate over each one to cover.
  4. Stand the balls in the butternut squash or pumpkin and press a Smartie on while wet and
  5. chill until set.
  6. Use icing pens to draw the black pupils on the Smarties and to draw the veins on the eyeballs.

I also find that you can make up some sponge/chocolate sponge and put tablespoons full of the mixture in a mini muffin tray, baking for 10-15 mins at 180C.

These can be rounded with a knife for the eyeballs before coating in white chocolate.
