Donut Hole Halloween Eyeballs

Thursday, October 12, 2017
Here are some delicious and scary donut hole eyeballs easy to make with homemade or store-bought donuts.

These eyeballs are filled with red raspberry jam, so when you bite into them they bleed raspberry jam (of course you can use strawberry if you prefer that flavor!).

Such a great family project for the kids during the Halloween season for parties or just because they're so darn yummy.

Our family has always been a big fan of jelly donuts, so that's what gave us the idea to turn these plain donuts into eyeballs for Halloween for some ghoulish fun.

If you want easy, I will show you my step-by-step easy version on how to get all the ingredients and make this such a fun Halloween night that everyone can help create evil eyeballs!

I will include a printable copy of instructions in the recipe card below so you can save this for next year!!
