Spooky Eyes Toast is a Scarily Simple Snack for Sharing


I absolutely love the cute and creative food ideas that pop up for Halloween. But sometimes, they’re a bit intimidating. Luckily, this spooky eyes toast recipe is so easy, even kids (and less crafty adults, like me) can make it. It calls for basic, everyday ingredients, and takes minutes to make. You can serve these little toast pairs as a fun surprise for breakfast, pack them into lunch boxes for a little fright, or serve them at a Halloween party. They’re great for kids, but I also like this concept for work gatherings or casual Halloween get togethers.
