Red Vines Purple Monster Eyeballs Recipe
With Grape Licorice Candy
What You'll Need:
- 12 Red Vines Grape Licorice Twists, chopped into small pieces
- ½ cup water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups rice crisp cereal
- 16 large candy eyeballs
- Purple sprinkles
Melt Red Vines Grape Twists
Combine the Red Vines Grape Licorice Twists and ¼ cup of water in a skillet over low heat.
Cook until the candy is melted, adding more water as needed to prevent it from sticking to the pan, about 7 minutes. When done, it should be the consistency of jelly.
Melt Butter and Marshmallows
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and a pinch of salt and stir until melted.
If you want a deeper purple color, add a few drops of purple food coloring to the marshmallows.
Remove from heat and fold in the melted Red Vines Grape Licorice Twists (a few lumps are okay).
Stir in Rice Crisp Cereal
Stir the rice crisp cereal into the marshmallow mixture and allow it to cool for 5 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and fill a small bowl with purple sprinkles.
Roll Into Balls and Add Eyeballs
Roll tablespoon-sized scoops of the cereal mixture between your hands (it helps to spray your hands with cooking spray first) to form ping pong sized balls.
Press a candy eyeball into each ball and roll the front in purple sprinkles. Set the purple monster eyeballs on the baking sheet to cool completely.
