Blood… blood everywhere. And those eyes. Awful, awful eyes!
Wait, nope, that’s not it. It’s an eye scream sundae. A silly little dessert for Halloween or any other time you want dessert to look just a little bit disturbing. It may well be greeted with screams of delight.
Crushed raspberries make delicious and lumpy fake blood. Homemade chocolate shell, like the Magic Shell you can buy at the store, holds the eyes in place. Delicious ice cream to make the whole thing worthwhile.
I used store bought ice cream because it’s so much easier. Pick a flavor that will taste good with the raspberries, but otherwise it’s up to your preferences. I chose Dreyer’s Double Fudge Brownie this time because chocolate and more chocolate.
I chose gummy eyes because the local dollar store has them out for Halloween. They’re on the large side, but delicious if you like gummy candy. You could also use the little Wilton eyes if you can’t find gummy ones anywhere. Use a bunch and you could make a great monster.
It’s easy to make this for one or for several. I’m giving directions for one, but measurements really aren’t that precise. It’s an Eye Scream Sundae. Have fun with it and don’t worry about precision.
Eye Scream Sundae Instructions
Prepare your homemade chocolate shell. Melt about a quarter cup of chocolate chips with about a teaspoon of coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second increments. Stir between rounds. When the mix is smooth from stirring, it’s ready. Put aside.
Place a quarter cup, more or less, of raspberries into a small bowl. Mash with a spoon. You want them well smashed, but still a little lumpy. The grosser they look, the better.
Slice a banana in half across the middle, then lengthwise for each part. Slice each quarter in half lengthwise. These are for decorative spikes.
Stack two scoops of ice cream into your dish. A little height works nicely to give you room to work.
Stick the banana spikes around the ice cream. Be careful – they may break easily. Tuck any broken ones in the back or come up with a fun placement for them. A spike in the “head” might work out, but I didn’t try that one.
Pour chocolate shell all over the ice cream. Place gummy eyes onto the chocolate shell and hold in place 15-30 seconds so the shell solidifies and holds the eyes in place.
Pour the crushed raspberries all over your poor victim… ice cream. I meant to say ice cream. Serve.

Place raspberries in a small bowl. Use a spoon to smash them until they are well smashed but somewhat lumpy. Gross is good.
Slice the banana in half across the middle as well as lengthwise. Slice each quarter into halves lengthwise to form spikes.
Place two scoops of ice cream into serving dish, one scoop on top of the other.
Place banana "spikes" decoratively around the ice cream. Have fun with it.

Quickly stick gummy eyes into chocolate shell, before it hardens. Hold in place for 15-30 seconds so that the shell hardens and holds the eyes in place.
Pour crushed raspberry "blood" all over your creation. Serve.
