What You Will Need

  • donut holes yep just from the bakery
  • frosting your choice of flavors but needs to be white for the eyes
  • red paste food coloring
  • toothpicks
  • sucker sticks or popsicle sticks
  • candy eyeballs
  • mason jar or another method to stand cake pops


  • Remove lid and foil wrap from canned icing. 
  • Microwave icing for 20 seconds and stir. 
  • Put stick inside of one donut hole and dip into the icing until covered. 
  • Add candy eyeball by pressing into the icing. 
  • Use a toothpick dipped in red paste food coloring to add "blood" around the eye. Just drag the toothpick through the icing randomly for the bloodlines. You can add as much or as little of the veins as you would like.
  • Stand up in a mason jar or by any other means to allow to harden. I used a Halloween printed tissue paper in my mason jar to make sure the pops did not touch.  Serve immediately or after the icing has hardened.
