  • 200 g ball mozzarella cheese
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes
  • basil leaves


  • Using the smaller end of a melon baller, scoop balls of cheese from the mozzarella ball.
  • Slice the cherry tomatoes in half, so you end up with the same number of halves as the scooped out mozzarella balls.
  • Wash the melon baller, then use it to scoop the flesh from each cherry tomato half.
  • Place a ball of mozarella in each cherry tomato half.
  • Using a single hole punch, punch small circles from the basil for the eyeball 'pupils'. If you don't have a hole punch, you could also cut them out by hand with a small pair of clean scissors.
  • Place a circle of basil on the top of each 'eyeball'. Pop a cocktail stick into each eyeball, or skewer them in pairs.
  • Serve immediately, or cover and store in the fridge until ready to serve.


Note: If you can find mini mozzarella balls they work perfectly for this recipe and will save you a bit of time too. Simply use them in the place of the scooped out mozzarella balls in this recipe.
