Cute little penguin appetizers

One of the traditions for Christmas is to have a progressive dinner in my husbands family.We get to see each others lights and we are each responsible for a different course of the meal.We had appetizers so I looked online and found this cute penguin appetizers with olives,carrots and cream cheese!

To make them you need:


  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.
After we were done we made some blue jello and spread marshmellows around to make it look like snow or ice. These little guys were a big hit!
What are your favorite traditions?
