Bloodshot Peanut Butter Eyeballs

So many Halloween ideas out there!  I've seen cake pops made into bloodshot eyeballs so why not my peanut butter balls?

Bloodshot Peanut Butter Eyeballs (makes about 35)

2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
6 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 pound almond bark
brown Reese's pieces (small pkg has about 14)
Red tinted piping gel (or you can use colored almond bark)

In a bowl combine peanut butter and butter. 
 Stir in powdered sugar.  It will look dry.  Keep smushing into it and it will slowly combine.
All of the powdered sugar will work in.
 Use a 1 inch cookie scoop and dip out balls.  Place them on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
 Roll smooth. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Melt almond bark in a double boiler.  Poke cooled ball with a toothpick and dunk into the almond bark.  Tap toothpick on the side of the bowl to knock off excess.
Place back on the wax paper. See that hole from the toothpick?
 Cover it with a brown Reese's Pieces candy. Place back in fridge until firm.
Using tinted piping gel, make little zig zags down the side to create the "bloodshot" look.  I used piping gel since it was ooey gooey but tinted almond bark or even frosting would work fine too.
 Already looking creepy on my pan.
Are they staring a me?!
