  • 2 pkg Butterfinger BB's
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups White Chocolate Morsels
  • 3 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 red decorator icing, small tube

  11. Dip one "eyeball" into melted morsel mixture using a wooden pick or skewer.
  12. Shake off excess and return to baking sheet.
  13. Gently press 1 Butterfinger BB on top of "eyeball" to make a "pupil."
  14. Repeat procedure with remaining "eyeballs" on baking sheet.
  15. Refrigerate until coating is set.
  16. Repeat with remaining sheet of "eyeballs" and coating.
  17. You may find it necessary to reheat morsel mixture before dipping second batch.
