Halloween Recipe - Eye Balls and Blood Soup

By Nicole at Plain Graces
This is a simple idea that literally makes eyes bulge with surprise.  I have served dilated pupils floating in homemade tomato soup and snuggled in steaming chili. To make your eyeballs, here is what you need: White Cheese (blanco Velveeta, string cheese, shredded mozzarella, or block mozzarella), Olives (the pimentos in green olives add a scary touch, but you can use black), Melon baller or spoon, Microwave safe bowl (if you are using hard cheeses).
Follow these steps to concoct a fear inducing entree:  Soften your cheese in the microwave safe bowl.  (I bypassed this step by using a white Velveeta cheese today). If you opt to use a different cheese, all you need to do is microwave it until it can be rolled into balls. Be careful that you don't overdo it and burn the cheese. Next, take your melon baller or spoon and dip out a rounded piece of cheese. With your finger, make a small indention and place an olive inside. Gently press the cheese around the olive. Finally, roll the cheese ball in the palm of your hands to smooth out the edges and give the eyes a round appearance. Refrigerate until serving time. Serve in hot soup, in goblets of tomato juice, or as a fun finger appetizer.
