These cute little guys are tradition with my in-laws for Thanksgiving and Christmas pre-dinner snacks.
We usually make a variety: some with plain cream cheese and some with herb cream cheese. Both are delicious, but I especially love the flavor of herb cream cheese, so that is my preference.
- extra large olives (for the bodies)
- medium olives (for the heads)
- cream cheese (with herbs is extra delicious!)
- peeled carrot
- ice for “snow” (optional)
Slice one side of an extra-large olive lengthwise and using a knife or cake decorating bag and tip, squish a small amount of cream cheese into the olive cavity.
Repeat, repeat, repeat!If you get a few people working on this, you’ll have a little penguin army in no time!
