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.

Ingredients

Directions

  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.
