We mask our faces
and wear strange hats,
and moan like witches
and screech like cats,
and jump like goblins
and thump like elves,
and almost manage
to scare ourselves!
3 oz (small box) lemon gelatin (can be sugar-free)
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup pineapple juice
8 oz cream cheese (can be lowfat/Neufchatel)
Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1 cup water in double boiler, add marshmallows and
stir to melt. Remove from heat. Add pineapple juice and cream cheese. Beat
until well blended. Cool slightly. If you have a truffle candy mold or round
ice cube trays, spary them with non-stick cooking spray first, then pour the
mixture in the molds and leave to set in the fridge. Otherwise pour into a
deep ceramic dish and chill until thickened or firm enough for scooping into
eyeballs. Using a melonballer, scoop full balls of the mixture and set aside
for decoration. To decorate, use liquid food colouring and an old detail
paintbrush and get creative. You will need black food coloring for the
pupils. Also, if you are in a hurry, instead of painting the colored irises,
you can carefully dip the ball in a small pool of food coloring to
approximate the iris, but still paint on the pupils. Note: if you are using
the melonballer method, you might need to add one package of plain gelatin
to your mixture. The molds work fine with just the lemon gelatin to make
gently squishy eyeballs.
Rubber ice cube trays work beautifully with much less waste than the
melonballer technique. Spray the rubber trays with non-stick cooking
spray beforehand like you would any gelatin mold, let the gelatin mixture
sit in the refrigerator to set, then I was able to carefully pop the
eyeballs out to paint them. Some of the eyeballs did break, and they do have
one flat side, but that actually works, since then they don't roll around
while you are trying to paint them. Wilton truffle candy molds are even
better, since the swirl design on the top is the right size for the cornea
shape on the eyeball. When using the truffle recipmolds, one e makes about 9
dozen eyeballs - plenty for a party crowd!
