candy eyeballs

Beat butter, vanilla, egg, and cream cheese until fluffy. Add cake mix and mix until combined. Tint with food coloring to desired "greeness". Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll into heaping tablespoon size balls and coat in confectioners' sugar. Place on cookie sheet about 2-inches apart and bake for 10-12 minutes.
