Eye Scream Sundae - Halloween Recipes


Eye Scream Sundae
Freshly plucked and frozen monster eye nestled in a bed of whipped swamp slime with a sprinkle of cave-cured earwax (aged 9 months).

I randomly decided that I should create gourmet descriptions of my creepy Halloween dishes and this is my first creation! I presented this to Lil C and Squidgy and they didn't bat an eye when I told them what it was but just picked up their bowls and walked away. However, Lil C did pause halfway to the table, turned and asked, "But, what is it really??"

Read on to find out how to make your own creepy ice cream sundaes at home!


Eye Scream Sundaes

Ingredients:
- Vanilla or other mostly white ice cream (I used chocolate chip cookie dough and just made sure no big cookie chunks were showing)
- Raspberry jam
- Starburst candies or gummy Lifesavers
- Chocolate chips
- Whipped cream (homemade or store-bought)
- Gold or yellow sugar sprinkles

Directions:
1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Using an ice cream scoop and your hands, create an ice cream sphere about the size of a clementine. Place the scoop on lined baking sheet. Repeat until you have your desired amount of eyeballs.

2. Scoop a tablespoon of raspberry jam into a bowl and add water, a teaspoon at a time, until the jam is drippy and pourable. Use a small clean paintbrush to draw 6 squiggly "veins" going down each eye.

3. Place Starburst candies in the microwave for 5 seconds to soften slightly - you will need 1 candy for every 2 sundaes. Cut each Starburst in half, then knead each piece and form into a flat disc. Push a chocolate chip, pointy side down, into each candy disc and gently press onto the top of each ice cream eyeball. Alternatively, you could use gummy Lifesavers instead of Starburst.

4. Place baking sheet in freezer for at least 30 minutes to let the eyeballs firm up.

5. Just before serving, squirt a spiral of whipped cream into the bottom of each serving bowl. (I made homemade whipped cream and added a few drops of green food coloring, but you can use regular whipped cream).

6. Using a large spoon or spatula, remove the ice cream eyeballs from the baking sheet and place them on your whipped cream nest. Finally, sprinkle the whole thing with gold or yellow sugar sprinkles.

Viola! Now you have perfectly creepy and delectable monster eyeballs! Enjoy!
