  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of vanilla extract (optional)

Preparation

  1. In a food processor or high-speed blender, process the coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, salt, and vanilla (if using) until everything is combined and a thick, oily dough is formed. Portion the dough out into 20 scoops on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until the dough is cold and solid, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Break out a pair of rubber gloves for this part – it’s gonna get a little messy! Remove the pre-portioned dough scoops out of the freezer and roll them into balls. The dough may seem hard to shape at first, but the heat from your hands will soften it eventually.
  3. Make a deep indentation in the middle of each coconut ball with your finger and stuff a raspberry inside – this is the “iris” of the eyeball. Top it off with a chocolate chip (flat side up) to create the “pupil.” Decorate with splatters of extra raspberry juice to make the eyeballs look extra scary and “bloody.”
  4. Serve to your friends … and beware!
