A Simple Way to Make Food Festive and Fun for Halloween

I debated whether or not I should even post this on the blog because it’s just so darn simple, but ultimately, I wanted to have it saved here in this little space because it’s just too cute.

There are so many Halloween treats and snacks out there on Pinterest, and they range from easy to complicated, but I’m here to tell you, you can turn any food into something fun and festive with just one little item…

Edible eyes!  You can buy them all in one size, or you can buy them in multi-packs that contain different sizes!


These are a staple in our house, and the kids just think they are the best.  We have put them on everything from waffles to muffins to donuts to bowls of popcorn to sandwiches to meatballs, and different types of fruit… you name it.   

It’s inexpensive, it’s easy, and it takes no time at all, but those little eyeballs pack a big punch and they add so much fun to an otherwise simple snack or meal.

Here are a few ways that we’ve used them… 

You could also use plastic spider rings

And if you’re feeling really fancy, be sure to grab one of these Halloween themed waffle irons… we have way too much fun with them every year!

And if you’re looking for more Halloween treat ideas, be sure to check out my candy corn fruit skewers, these easy chocolate ghost cupcake toppers, and this Halloween charcuterie board.  ‘Tis the season, y’all!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I’ve been buying those googly eyes for years, you’ve done some really creative ways to use them, I love that you posted it!

  2. I love all of the ways you have used those eyes and the kids must love it!

  3. All of these are adorable, and love how easy it is to throw these little eyeballs on different foods! Hope I can make cute things like this when I have a little one!
