Turn a homemade or store-bought pumpkin pie into a creepy Eyeball Pie for Halloween. Your party guest won't be able to resist this deliciously gory dessert.
A few years ago, we hosted a Dead Man's Diner party for Halloween and I felt like a mad scientist in my kitchen bringing body part-shaped food to life.
I know some people would be totally grossed out when served food shaped like skulls, bones, fingers, and toes, but we found that the majority of our 80+ guests gleefully gobbled up Hand-Burgers served with Finger Fries, Bone Calzones, Open Face Sandwiches (with a mashed potato face), and more.
Crafting food to look like eyeballs was particularly fun.
We served an entire table filled with eyeball-shaped Halloween appetizers including eyeball pizzas, dips, and cheese puffs.
Then once, those snacks were all gobbled up, we filled the table with dead-serts! We served a Creme Brulee Pie Eyeball, eyeball buckeyes, peanut butter body parts (fingers, toes, and noses), chocolate lips, and this Eyeball Pie.
The eyeball pie was super easy to make because I used a store-bought pumpkin pie.
Then I decorated it using Cool Whip and gel icing. I had the pie decorated in under 10 minutes.
I hope you have fun making one of these creepy P-EYEs for your party!
1 store-bought or homemade pumpkin pie
Cool Whip Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed
Green or Blue Sparkle Gel or Decorating Gel
Black Sparkle Gel or Decorating Gel
Red Sparkle Gel or Decorating Gel
offset spatula or spoon
Spread an even layer of whipped topping on your pie, it can be thick or thin, depending on your preference.
Draw a circle in the center of the pie using the green gel.
Pipe a larger circle around the first and fill in with the green gel.
Fill in the center circle with the black gel.
To make the eye more realistic, pipe in some black streaks on top of the green gel.
Pipe on bloodshot veins using red gel.
That's it! This is such a fun way to make a creepy dessert for a Halloween party.
