Here's Looking at You, Kid

How, without edible eyes, are you going to make meaningful eye contact with your toast? As it turns out, you can make a pair of peepers out of almost any small round food. A light circle with a dark circle will give you a classic look. Green olives paired with red pepperoni and tomatoes are a little bit spooky. Here are a few edible "eyes" that actually taste good with the toast they're sitting on.
