witches soup horizontalMy kids love everything about Halloween and love creepy and spooky snacks and foods. Serving them cream cheese and olive “eyeballs” in tomato soup always gets them excited. I love that the kids are eating healthy tomato soup, and the cream cheese and olive not only add a touch of Halloween but also a nice creaminess to the soup. This can be a really fast dinner if you are using your favorite real-ingredient tomato soup or a more hearty dinner if you make your own tomato soup and add a slice of fresh bread.

If you want or need to prep ahead, simply refrigerate the cream cheese balls in a covered container and add the olive slice just before adding it to the soup.
