Gelatin Eyeballs

Gelatin Eyeballs Recipe


  • 3 oz. lemon gelatin
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 8-0z. pkg cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise


  1. Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1 cup water in double boiler, add marshmallows and stir to melt. Remove from heat. Add pineapple juice and cream cheese. Beat until well blended. Cool slightly. Fold in whipped cream and mayo. Chill until thickened or firm for scooping into eyeballs.
  2. Using a melon baller, scoop full balls of the mixture and set aside for decoration. To decorate, use food coloring and an old paintbrush and get creative.
  3. You will need black food coloring for the pupils.
  4. Also, if you are in a hurry, instead of painting the colored irises, you can dip the ball in a small pool of food coloring to approximate the iris, but still paint on the pupils.
  5. You can also use rubber ice cube trays that work beautifully with much less waste than the melon baller technique.
  6. You can spray the rubber trays with non-stick cooking spray beforehand like you would any gelatin mold, let the gelatin mixture sit in the refrigerator to set, then carefully pop the eyeballs out to paint them.
  7. Some of the eyeballs can break, and they do have one flat side, but that actually works, since then they don't roll around while you are trying to paint them.
