The recipe is from Life as a Lofthouse, and it's as easy as can be. Seriously -- you don't even have to turn on your oven! You start with Vanilla Wafer cookies, and use a variety of sweet treats to transform them into eyeballs. Easy + delicious + zombies = your perfect Halloween treat.

Zombie Eyeball Cookies
1 box Vanilla Wafer cookies
8 ounces white candy coating or white chocolate bark
Blue plain M&M's
Red food/decorating gel
Black food/decorating gel
Melt candy coating or white chocolate bark in a microwavable-safe bowl, according to package directions. Dip the tops of the cookies, one at a time, into the melted candy coating, and then place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
Top each coated cookie with one blue M&M candy. Place one dot of black food gel into the center of each M&M, to create the pupil of the eye.
Squeeze a dime-size amount of red food/decorating gel onto a paper plate. Dip the end of a toothpick into the red food gel, and gently make zig zag lines around the blue M&M's, on each cookie, to create the 'blood-shot' eye effect.
Let cookies rest about 20 minutes, to let the gel set, before eating. Serve and enjoy!
