Cream Cheese Penguins

Something fun to prepare for this weekend’s get together before we all have to march back to work.

Great centre piece for any party.


  • 18 jumbo black olives, pitted
  • 224 g cream cheese, softened
  • 18 small black olives
  • 1 carrot


  1. Cut a slit from top to bottom, lengthwise, into the side of each jumbo olive.
  2. Carefully insert about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese into each olive.
  3. Slice the carrot into eighteen 1/4 inch thick rounds; cut a small notch out of each carrot slice to form feet.
  4. Save the cut out piece and press into center of small olive to form the beak. If necessary cut a small slit into each olive before inserting the beak.
  5. Set a big olive, large hole side down, onto a carrot slice.
  6. Then, set a small olive onto the large olive, adjusting so that the beak, cream cheese chest and notch in the carrot slice line up.
  7. Secure with a toothpick.
