These spooky Halloween Eyeball Snacks are super quick and easy to make. They require only 3 ingredients, no cooking, and are healthier than candy!
Halloween is almost here. For my family, that means so much candy we don't know what to do with it all, from just a couple of short hours of trick or treating.
Plus all the extra candy that's not from trick or treating. It comes from friends at school, or teachers, or "extra" trick or treating and Halloween-related events that happen days or even weeks before Halloween.
Not that I have a problem with my kids eating some candy. But the candy we get trick or treating is enough, and often doesn't even get finished.
We don't need more - it just ends up going to waste. This is why I like to find some non-candy Halloween-themed snacks and treats to celebrate. And these Spooky Halloween Eyeball Snacks certainly fit the bill.
These creepy-looking eyeball snacks are perfect if you need to bring a snack to a Halloween party at the last minute. They're fast and easy to prepare, and require no cooking!
Plus, they're a healthier option as they're made from fruit and just a little jam for extra goriness.
Where can you find canned lychees?
Most large, well-stocked grocery stores will have canned lychees. You can find them either with the canned fruit, or in the International aisle.
If you don't have access to any of these types of stores, you can order them online.
Not only are these eyeballs fun and delicious eaten straight off a platter, but they also make fun drink garnishes in a Halloween-themed cocktail or mocktail.

Halloween Eyeball Snack Nutrition Notes:
The above nutrition information is for one "eyeball". The calculations use regular jam, not reduced or low-sugar jam.
The amount of sugar in your Halloween eyeball snacks will vary depending on the amount of sugar in the syrup of your canned lychees, as well as on the type of jam you choose.
But overall, these can be considered a healthier spooky Halloween treat compared to many other (candy-based) options out there.
Spooky Halloween Eyeball Snacks
- 1 can lychees, drained
- 3 Tablespoons strawberry or raspberry jam (or any other red jam or jelly of your choice)
- 16 fresh blueberries
- Slightly pat lychees dry. Using a small spoon, add about ½ teaspoon of jam into the hole of the lychee (if your jam is very thick, try thinning it by warming it in the microwave for a few seconds). Place a blueberry into the hole of each blueberry. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
