Look, guys. It’s not really Halloween until you start making body parts out of food. That’s just the way it is. And what better body part to start with than eyeballs?
The recipe has instructions for making the actual hot chocolate, too, but I’m too lazy for that shit. I used instant hot chocolate. But I made the eyeballs.
The instructions are short and sweet and sound deceptively easy. But I couldn’t even find the right candy. What the hell are Crows anyway? Is it some candy that they don’t sell in the US or something? Anyway, I couldn’t find any, so I attempted to use Hershey kisses.
It actually kind of sort of looked like it might work…
Let me tell you, though, if you’ve never thought about how hard it might be to shove a Hershey kiss in a marshmallow and then put the whole thing on a stick: it’s not all that easy. My marshmallows got a little squished and my Hershey kisses didn’t get on the stick too well.
And as far as the result, well, see for yourself.
Not exactly like the original. But scary in a different way. Like in the, “OMG you fucked up again! Scary!” way.
Also, I left to go unload the dryer (yes, I do occasionally do household chores which I do not fuck up) and when I came back, it looked like this:
And I can’t really decide if that’s a pin-fail or a didn’t-drink-it-fast-enough fail.
On the plus side, two giant marshmallows and two Hershey kisses in a cup of hot chocolate tastes pretty badass. And I drank the whole thing. Sometimes pretty doesn’t matter.
