Cream Cheese Penguin Appetizers - A Flashback

All you need for these handsome Penguins is jumbo olives, small olives, carrots and cream cheese.

Cut a slit from top to bottom on the jumbo olive, and carefully insert about a teaspoon of cream cheese.

Slice the carrot into 1/4" thick rounds, cut a small notch to form feet. Save the cut out piece for the beak and press into the small olive (the head). Secure with a toothpick.

Give it a try....they are FUN! I plan on using them on my veggie platter and might also try a flavored cream cheese.

Recipe from Betty Crocker's Best Christmas cookbook. I originally posted this in December 2008, and am reposting it for Flashback Friday hosted by Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet.

Thank you for your visit!

  5. Thanks everyone! I think they will look adorable on my veggie platter. Might try using a flavored cream cheese.
