  • 1 slice Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 Black olives zucchini or eggplant


  • Cut slices of cheese as thick as you want your eyeballs to be.
  • If using the zucchini or eggplant, cut off a piece of the skin approximately the same thickness as your cheese. If using olives, cut off the sides so they can lay flat.
  • Using the large straw, cut large circles out of the cheese. Cut the centers out of your circles using the small straw.
  • Using the small straw, cut pieces out of your dark veggie. Pop the little pieces of olive into the cheese circle (it will fit perfectly).

  1. Hi Holy !!! there are so many of your recipes that are easy … I have only tried a couple of them but was very pleased Thank you5 stars

    1. If they don’t fall out on their own you should be able to squeeze them out easily Cat! Let us know how it goes.

    1. It depends on what I am adding them to… if it’s warm enough they sometimes stick, if not, a dab of mayo, cream cheese or sauce is usually enough. :)

  2. Oh my goodness, these are so easy! I can think of a million foods to hide these in! What a great idea:)
