Puffy Eyeball Truffles

I got this wonderful post from Mandy on how to make these! Mandy owns all rights to the photos and information listed below, Thanks Mandy!

Peanut Butter Truffle Eyeballs

Peanut Butter Truffle Eyeballs
Ingredients:
1 1/2 C. crushed Reese's Puffs Cereal
1 1/2 C. Peanut Butter
3/4 C. Butter, softened
4-6 C. Powdered Sugar
White Candy Melts
Red Candy Melts
Chocolate Chips (about 1/2 C.)
Wax paper
toothpick
Sucker Sticks, optional
Directions:
In large bowl, combine crused Reese's Puffs Cereal, Peanut Butter and butter. Mix well. Add powdered sugar, a cup at a time, until you have a firm dough. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper.
Now, you can make these eyeballs stand-alone or put them on sucker sticks. We like making them into suckers, it's easier for the kids to dip them and they're fun to eat!
If making suckers, dip each stick in a little bit of melted white candy melts and push one into each peanut butter ball. Place in fridge for about 5 minutes to harden. (Tip: put your wax paper on a cookie sheet, then it's easy to transfer your treats to/from the fridge!)Dip each ball into melted White candy melts and set on wax paper to harden (about 5 minutes). When set, dip one side into melted red candy melts. Using a toothpick, drizzle some extra red around the edges to look like the eyes are "bloodshot". Press one chocolate chip, pointed side down, into the center and let set completely.
Here's an example of the "bloodshot" eyes! Thanks, Big C!:)
