White Chocolate Ganache Eyeballs

White Chocolate Ganache Eyeballs
Dare you eat blood-shot eyeballs? Believe it or not, these creepy confections only look scary—they’re made with a perfectly delicious combo of white chocolate, heavy cream, and chocolate chips. A careful drizzling of red food coloring transforms them into crazed monster eyes, but if you don’t have the most steady hands, don’t be deterred. No monster has perfectly bloodshot eyes, anyways! The best part? You’re only five ingredients away from having these treats in your kitchen. Just be sure to give yourself enough time to let the chocolate mixture firm up in the refrigerator, which will allow you to roll it into eyeball shapes.

  • pinch fine salt

  • 30 chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring


  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper
