Edible Eyeballs

I love bringing kids imaginations to life!
Years ago for my son's Halloween birthday party I was looking for a way to make edible "eyeballs" on the table a way that kids would actually eat and enjoy, I knew those little people were NOT touching an olive lol! So, I added a twist on those pretzel snacks that were showing up at holidays, turning them into "eyeballs" and the kids have loved it ever since...I mean all the kids...My sons class is always asking him to make them and bring them in! My children both have severe nut allergies to both tree and peanuts - so we make most of our treats at home.
Your kids will have a blast making, eating and sharing these!

round or square pretzels
white chocolate disks
chocolate chips
red jimmies

On a baking sheet, place pretzels in a single layer. Put one white chocolate disk in the center of each pretzel. Place in a 350 degree oven for approx 3-4 minutes or until chocolate is shiny but not melted or falling through the pretzel.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with red jimmies. Invert one chocolate chip in the center of each disk. Cool in your fridge or cold garage for 20 minutes and they will remain hard until ready to eat. They keep well for a week in a sealed container.

Happy Cooking!
