Pots and Pans – Penguin Appetizers

I repost this every year because they turned out so CUTE! They’re delicious too…

These adorable penguin appetizers were a big hit at Christmas dinner yesterday. Peel and cut carrots into medallions, cut a notch out of each medallion for the feet which automatically creates a beak to place in the large end of a small pitted black olive. Using a large pitted black olive, cut a small slit in the front, open and place about a quarter teaspoon of cream cheese inside. (I used the already softened variety of cream cheese in a tub) It helps if you shape the cream cheese a bit on a plate or wax paper before you place it inside the olive. Take a toothpick, insert through head, into the larger cream cheese body and into the feet with the notch pointing frontwards. So easy, not expensive, and so much fun!!!

I wish I had taken a photograph of my little flock, but in the busyness of the day became distracted and forgot. They are even cuter when you have a dozen or more standing at attention on a serving plate.
