Witches have a different grocery shopping list than us commoners. I imagine lizard’s eyeballs must be a pantry staple for brewing up a cauldron of potion. This year, I decided to be a witch for a day and stock my kitchen accordingly. There is one little problem though. I am deathly afraid of lizards and cannot even bear to look at those creatures. Extracting a whole jar of eyeballs would be next to impossible.
Thankfully, I am reasonably resourceful and I know that a wannabe doesn’t always need the real thing to look credible. A jar of fake eyeballs can be had with just a bit of rolling and dipping. If you are from Ohio, you are probably familiar with the classic buckeye candies. The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is delicious without a doubt but I love to play around using different flavours. I experimented with a pink and brown version previously using Nutella for a Valentine’s Day treat. But now is not the time for cute. Lizard’s eyeballs call for speculoo spread, speculoo cookies, pumpkin seeds, and white chocolate.
