Description

A fun finger-food and cute addition to any table. You’ll get lots of compliments. Included is an old picture of the penguins and the other fare on ‘food day’ at work. They do make for an adorable display.

Ingredients

  • 20 whole Jumbo Black Olives, Pitted
  • 20 whole Small Black Olives, Pitted
  • 1 package Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 whole Carrot, Sliced

Preparation

Cut a slit in the jumbo olive from top to bottom. Carefully fill with cream cheese. (I used to spoon it in, but it took forever – just fill a corner of a heavy duty plastic storage bag with cream cheese and cut off a tip and squeeze, or use cake decorator frosting bags.) As the cream cheese fills the olive, you’ll notice the ‘white’ of his ‘tuxedo’ showing.

Slice the carrots less than 1/4″ thick. Cut out a notch in each of the 20 slices, saving the notches. Set the jumbo olives on the carrot slices, large hole down.

Use the cut out notches from the carrot slices as the beak in the small black olives. If needed, cut a small slit in the olive to better insert it.

Put the small olive on the jumbo olive and attach with a festive toothpick.

If you are really ambitious, you can make little scarves to go around their necks with pimento or roasted tomatoes strips.

I made these for New Year’s Eve and they were so cute nobody wanted to eat them! But they taste great on top of being adorable. But beware, they take time…

How absolutely adorable!!! It’d be such a fun appetizer for the little ones (and big ones too) at family get-togethers!
