Tomorrow evening having a ladies get together and I made these cute penguins. They are super easy, and YUMMY!!!!

Crazy easy Cream Cheese Penguin recipe:


    * 18 jumbo black olives, pitted
    * 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    * 18 small black olives
    * 1 carrot

1. Cut a slit from top to bottom, lengthwise, into the side of each jumbo olive. Carefully insert about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese into each olive. Slice the carrot into eighteen 1/4 inch thick rounds; cut a small notch out of each carrot slice to form feet. Save the cut out piece and press into center of small olive to form the beak. If necessary cut a small slit into each olive before inserting the beak.
2. Set a big olive, large hole side down, onto a carrot slice. Then, set a small olive onto the large olive, adjusting so that the beak, cream cheese chest and notch in the carrot slice line up. Secure with a toothpick.

Enjoy!!!!  Smiley

lol! my boyfriend and i made these last night. he used to make them when he was little. we were literally just talking about them just before i saw your post! i thought on their own they were a little on the bland side. if i did it again i might add some garlic and onion powder to the cream cheese for some flavor.

Aww! I used to make these too, when I was a kid! Well, my mom did, and would let me "help." We got the recipe from a Ty Beanie Babies book. Go figure. Thanks for reminding me of these! I am going to make some for a wedding reception I am going to tomorrow night!
