  • Fill each tomato skin with cream cheese. It’s ok if things start to get a little messy and the pesto spreads into the cream cheese. This gives the illusion of “infected” eyeballs!
  • Next, press a sliced black olive into the center of each eyeball. Using the squirt bottle, squirt a small amount of pesto in the middle of each olive.
