This would be a wonderful Halloween recipe to get kids involved with — I’m sure they’d enjoy creating the eyeballs with the brown candies and Life Saver gummies.

Ingredients in Halloween Oreo Eyeballs

- Life Saver gummies
- Brown chocolate candies (such as M&M’s)
How to Make Halloween Chocolate-Covered Oreo Eyeballs
Making this Halloween eyeball dessert does require some patience, but it’s an easy process that anyone can master. Here’s an overview of how the Oreo eyeballs are made:
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Lightly dip an Oreo cookie into the melted white chocolate, coating all sides. Let excess chocolate drip off and then place onto prepared baking pan.
- Repeat with rest of cookies.
- Once all the cookies have been coated in white chocolate, place the pan into the freezer just until the chocolate has hardened.
- Transfer the melted red candies to a piping bag (or ziplock bag), and cut a tiny hole in the tip. Pipe some squiggly lines on top of the cookies to make them look like bloodshot eyes.
- Then, place a Lifesaver gummy in the middle of each Oreo.
- Squeeze a dab of the melted candy melts into the center of the gummies, then press the chocolate candy on top.
- Allow the white chocolate-covered Oreos to set until the red lines have hardened.
Can I Use Any Flavor of Oreo?
Yes, you may use any kind of Oreo to make this no-bake Halloween treat. I used regular Oreos because those are my favorite, but Double Stuf, flavored Oreos, or the special limited edition Halloween Oreos will all work too!
Can I Use Another Type of Chocolate?
No, you need to use white chocolate for creating the Oreo eyeballs. Dark or milk chocolate won’t make the Oreos look like eyeballs, after all!
Tips for the Best Halloween Oreo Eyeballs
- To achieve the same super smooth edges shown in the photos above, use a silicone cookie mold rather than dunking the Oreos individually into the melted white chocolate.
- I prefer using white melting wafers rather than actual white chocolate for this recipe. White chocolate tends to seize up, and if you need to melt more white chocolate than anticipated you have to dirty a second bowl to do so. White melting wafers melt beautifully and don’t clump up like regular white chocolate does.
- If you don’t want to buy an entire bag of M&M’s just to use a few of the brown ones in this recipe, you may substitute chocolate chips to create the pupils.
