Halloween appetizers are so much fun to make. From throwing up pumpkins, to fingers in a blanket, its time to make some food that will gross out your party but still have everyone saying MMM! These mozzarella eyeballs are certain to do the trick. So easy to make, they have a zingy little tang to them.
Thankfully most party trays really are simple and this one is no exception. You can make some seriously disgusting bloody mozzarella eyeballs in a matter of minute that look disgusting on a plate, but taste so good. I mean who doesn’t love a mozzarella ball!
There are many ways to make the eyeball irises themselves but I love the olives. They sit really well on the cheese. You could also substitute the green olive for a bit of basil and center the black olive in the middle, making it more of a Caprese appetizer.
My kind of yumm!
You can also try this trick on these mozzarella stuffed meatballs and use fresh pesto and cheese.
These mozzarella eyeballs are so fun and make a great Halloween appetizer. If you are looking for other fun holiday appetizers to fill up your party, also try these mummy hot dogs!

My mozzarella balls came in water so if yours do, make sure you drain first. Then you need to pull them out and set up the tray.
I find that a deviled egg holder is the perfect way to balance your cheese balls.
Fill up your entire tray.
Add some tomato sauce to a pastry bag or put in a baggy and snip the tiniest bit off the bottom. Be careful because spaghetti sauce is runny and can come out quickly. You can also just use a spoon if you prefer.
Put a little bit on each ball, letting it drip down.
Cut your green olives in circles and your black olives up into tiny bits.
Add the black to the center of the green.
Place olives on top of your mozzarella ball till entire tray is done.
