Today we've pulled out the food markers and some homemade cookies to make Eyeball Cookie Pops. You can decorate these goods to give as treats at your Halloween party or leave the coloring up to the kids for a fun Halloween craft. All this week I'll be sharing super fun and quick Halloween Craft ideas and tutorials. I can't wait to share them all with you!
Last Halloween I was coloring marshmallows. Over the summer I was learning how to use Royal Icing so I thought I'd experiment and see if food markers would work for the iced cookies… and yes! Yes, food markers are brilliantly fun to use with royal icing and cookies. You can use any marker colors you'd like for these eyeball cookie. I have two different sets of the Wilton food markers to get all the colors I use.
Eyeball Cookie Pops
You can decorate your cookies in no time, so this is a perfect fit for today's Craft Lightning project!
What you need: (affiliate links included)
- Make ahead: Cookies frosted with royal icing (set for at least an hour) – I used easy cake mix cookies
- Food markers (Wilton Set of 5 – Primary Colors
and Wilton Food Set of 5 – Neon Colors)
- Your eyeball-ready imagination and coloring skills. You can use my printable eyeball decor page for inspiration when drawing your eyeballs
Decorating eyeball cookie pops
- Use the food markers to color the eyeball design on each cookie. Start with the lighter colors and then add in the black last… you can't color over black!
- I start with the bigger colored circle in the center of the cookie.
- Then add in a smaller black circle in the middle and outline the color with black.
- You can stop here or use the red marker to add in little drawn blood vessels for more of a spooky eyeball.
