Each halloween spider toast slice needs one pitted black olive. Cut each in half length ways, and use one half as the body of the spider.

Olives cut to spider shapes

Cut the remaining half into 8 long strips, and arrange around the body as legs.

Serve with your favourite soup. This is delicious with tomato soup, which would probably be my children’s favourite, however I served ours with this delicious mushroom soup . The colour of the mushroom soup works especially well with with spider web.

Pretty much any hearty thick soup – butternut squash, carrot or pea soup would work well. Alternatively the garlic toast would be great with chilli or a hearty stew.

For added halloween theming, add a dash of double (heavy) cream to the middle of the soup bowl.

Use a skewer to draw 4 lines through the cream to make spokes of cream on the surface. Finally add a few swags between the spokes to make a spider web effect.
