I have a love-hate relationship with "creepy" Halloween treats. On one hand, they're kind of revolting, yet on the other, they're pretty damn cool. These Zombie Eyeball Rice Krispie Treats are a little more icky than I'd normally like to go on Halloween, but they're pretty much as easy as dumping a package of miniature Snickers into a giant bowl.
Also, what kid in their right mind wouldn't love to eat a zombie eyeball?
