Fancy Halloween Food: Eyeball Caprese

Editor's Note: Every morning in October, we'll have something to put you in the Halloween mood!


It's not hard to find Halloween snacks to impress kids, but finding something classy and creepy enough for adults can be a bit more difficult. That’s why the Eyeball Caprese makes the perfect appetizer for any Halloween party. It’s a simple twist on a classic insalata caprese, and it looks fantastic.

The key ingredient here is the Castelvetrano olives, an Italian specialty that has the perfect shade of bright green skin—as Evil Mad Scientist notes: "You can of course use other types of green olives, but they probably won't look quite as alive." If you're wondering how to make the pupil shape precise, the trick is to use a plastic drinking straw. [via super punch]
