Add some fun to the kids lunches with these Googly Eye Halloween Treats!
When the kids were little we used to love making things with googly eyes. One day we progressed from adding candy eyes to baking onto 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 kids lunches? Especially when it’s a surprise!
Where do you find Candy Googly Eyes?
We have found them at Michael’s, Bulk Barn and even in local grocery stores recently.
If you have enough time, you can buy them on Amazon.
How you make 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 over drink spout for straw. 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 lay out on a rimmed baking sheet. Chill until firm. Cut into rectangle shapes. Pick up some candy melts and carefully melt the chocolate. Dip one corner 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, vegetables (why not), and using icing glue them on to straws for your smoothies or milkshakes.
Recently we were in the kitchen with Deb Matejicka from The Weather Network talking about googly eyes and fun Halloween treats for the kids.
