Candy eyes are a fun, easy way to add a little personality to your cookies, cupcakes and cakes. Whether you’re baking for Halloween, a birthday party or just want to create a spooky look for your baked goods, these black and white googly eyes are sure to turn your treats into something special!

How To Make Googley Candy Eyes

A few simple ingredients are all that’s needed to make these homemade edible googly eyes. This recipe is gluten free, so it’s perfect for vegans or anyone who may have a sensitivity to egg whites.

To get started: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick mat. Set your piping bag with a number 3 or 4 round tip on top of the parchment paper. Fill the bag with white royal icing and pipe small dots across your cookie sheet until you’ve filled it up.

Next, put a small amount of black royal icing in another piping bag and fill that with smaller black dots. This will form the pupil of your edible googly eye.

Let the black dot icing dry overnight before decorating. If you’re unable to let it dry completely overnight, leave it in the fridge or at room temperature until it’s hard and then transfer it to an airtight container or bag until you need it.

These edible googly eyes are fun and quick to make, so you can get started on your next batch of Halloween-themed treats before you know it! Use these as cupcake toppers, on cake pops or even as a decorative polka dot pattern on brownies or rice cereal treats.
