Cheesy Eye Ball Recipe


Total Time: 15 mins

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins

Yield: 1 serving

Equipment: serving tray or platter

You will need

  • chopstick or skewer
  • small paintbrush


  • 24 mini cheese rounds
  • 24 green olive slices
  • 8 black olives
  • red gel food color


  1. Remove the wax casing from the cheeses. Use a paring knife to carefully cut a divot in the center of the cheese that's approximately the size of a green olive slice.
  2. Press a green olive slice into the divot firmly, being careful not to damage the olive slice.
  3. Use a paring knife to make three round slices from each black olive. Place the black olive round in the center of the green olive to make a "pupil."
  4. Dip a small paintbrush into the red gel food coloring and paint squiggly lines from the olives outward to give the eyes a bloodshot effect. Six to eight lines per eyeball will provide the best look.
  5. Keep cold until ready to serve.


Tara's Tip: Use a Halloween Boofetti serving platter for a perfect presentation!
