These Spooky Eyeball Truffles are a delicious kid-friendly Halloween treat that is easy to make and fun to eat!
When I got these adorable gummy eyeballs, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. Oreo truffles with eyeballs on top. Eyeball truffles. Spooky eyeball truffles. Because…how fun is that??
They’re just a little spooky, but more fun and silly than anything. Kids love fun and silly. Especially for Halloween. And they are so easy to make!! If you needed a last-minute treat, you could realistically throw these together in half an hour, and that’s with the time to firm up the truffles and the coating!

Spooky Eyeball Truffles
- 25 Oreos (or other chocolate sandwich cookies)
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups white chocolate bark
- 2 pkgs Gummy Eyeballs (there are 12 per package, you will have a few leftover)
- Place oreos in a blender or food processor and pulse into crumbs.
- Add to a medium mixing bowl with the softened cream cheese and mix with a hand mixer until well-combined.
- Use a medium cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop even amounts of oreo mixture out, and roll into balls in your hands. Place on a wax-paper lined plate or cookie sheet. Repeat until all the mixture is used. You will have 16-18 truffles depending on size. Place truffles in fridge for about 15 minutes (or freezer for about 5-7 minutes)
- Melt the white chocolate bark in a cup or measuring cup that is deep enough for easier dipping. (Standard melting instructions are 60 seconds on 50% power, stir, and then heat at 50% power in 30 second increments until melted, stirring each time.)
- Once melted, remove the truffles from the fridge or freezer, drop them into the melted chocolate one at a time and use a fork to scoop out, tapping the fork on the edge of the container to remove excess chocolate and smooth the surface. Place back on your wax paper covered plate, using a toothpick to help scoot it off the fork if necessary. Press a gummy eyeball into the top of the truffle immediately. Repeat until all truffles are made.
- Place truffles in the fridge for about 10 minutes or so, until the chocolate sets. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
