Ingredients

  • 18

    jumbo ripe Black olives

  • 18

    small ripe Black olives

  • 1

    (8 ounce) package cream cheese

  • 1

    carrot (about 6 inches long and 1 inch wide)

  • 18

    long fresh chives

  • 18

    frill toothpicks (or plain)

Directions

Cut a slit lengthwise from top to bottom in each jumbo olive Fill each cavity of the jumbo olives with about a teaspoon of cream cheese (I piped it in using a #12 tip) This makes the the white stripe in penguins chest. Cut carrot into 1/4 inch slices,then out of each slice cut a small pie shaped piece. This makes the feet, save the piece you cut out, this will be the beak In the x slit in the center of each small olive (where the pit was removed) press the small piece of carrot into the hole with the pointed end out. Using a frill toothpick,stack head ( small olive ), body (large olive) and feet (carrot slice), adjusting so that beak, cream cheese breast and notch in carrot line up. Tie chive around neck for the scarf.
