Olive Penguin Appetizers

Olive Penguin Appetizers... I recently stumbled upon this cute idea on foodgawker and instantly tried to duplicate it. It was very easy to do...and I loved the way they came out. Too cute! You don't need a lot of ingredients. I used just extra large olives.... though I think the recipe called for jumbo(body) and small(head) olives. You can make the penguins as skinny or fat as you like by varying the amounts of cream cheese filling. Hope you enjoy...

You will need:

  • olives
  • baby carrots
  • cream cheese
  • toothpicks


1. Cut a slit in olive.

2. Cut a wedge from a slice of baby carrot

3. Cut small strips of carrot for the nose

4. Fill olive with cream cheese, place "nose" in second olive and assemble using the toothpick to hold the penguin together.

I HAD to check this one out when seeing "penguin" in the recipe title! (Although I knew there'd be a twist to it) ;)

Thanks for posting it Ellie as I would probably never had found it otherwise.
