Icky eyeballs

What would Halloween be without some gore? And what is ickier than some gooey eyeballs? 


2 c water
16 oz cream cheese (two 8 oz packages)
6 oz gelatin (lemon flavor)
2 c juice (pineapple juice)


  1. Microwave the water in a medium bowl on high for 3 minutes, then remove and pour in the lemon gelatin to dissolve it. Add the marshmallows, coating them well. Pour on the pineapple juice and stir. Let the mixture sit while you warm the cream cheese to soften it. Mix in the cream cheese. Then heat the entire mixture in the microwave for another minute. Stir until well blended.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture for two hours. A melon ball scoop makes for a great tool to carve out some eyeballs. As an alternative, you can cool the mixture in rounded ice cube trays. The tops will be squarish, but you can turn them over and bunch them all together to disguise this.
  3. Now use blue food coloring to paint on the irises. A drop of black food coloring in the center does nicely for the pupils.
