Add some fun to lunches with these Googly Eye Halloween Treats! All it takes is some candy eyes, white tape and a little imagination to brighten someone’s day!
When the kids were little we used to love making things with googly eyes. This included candy eyes and baking plus crafts. We did a lot of crafts back in those days.
One day we progressed from adding candy eyes to baked items – to sticking them on to fruit and juice boxes!
We love to have fun with our food and what’s more fun than putting edible Googly Eyes on snacks and sending them to school with your big or little kids lunches? We’ve added them to snack mixes, sandwiches and anything that is edible and fun!
Where do you find Candy Googly Eyes?
We buy our candy eyes Michael’s Craft Stores, Bulk Barn and have even found them in the local grocery stores.
If you have enough time, you can buy them on Amazon.
Making these treats
Once you have your googly eyes, and some white tape, you are ready to start creating!
1. Remove straws from juice boxes. Poke a hole in a strip of white tape and place tape over drink spout for straw matching up the holes. Wrap juice boxes up in white duct tape, white electrical tape or medicine tape. Add googly eyes and secure with a mummy bandage (piece of tape). Tape straw to back of box.
2. Using a tube of white icing as your glue, glue two eyes to pears, apples, bananas or oranges. Completely edible minus the peels.
3. Make your favourite rice krispie recipe and spread all over a rimmed baking sheet. Chill until firm. Cut into rectangle shapes. Buy your favourite coloured chocolate candy melts and melt the chocolate in the microwave low and slow. Dip one end of your rectangle rice krispie into the chocolate. Add 2 googly eyes to the chocolate part and lay on baking sheet. Chill to set.
4. Add googly eyes to granola bars, cookies, brownies and squares, chocolate bark, caramel popcorn, cupcakes even vegetables like carrots~! It’s easy just pick up a tube of icing to glue them onto items!
