Olive Penguins - Cute cocktail party idea


You'll need:

    1 can of jumbo or large black olives
    1 can of small black olives
    1/4 to 1/3 pound of soft cheese, such as fromage blanc (I used goat fromage blanc), or cream cheese (what was served to us originally).
    1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced into rounds
    Frilled Toothpicks


  1. For the feet: Cut a triangle out of the carrot rounds, like so:
  2. The big piece will be the feet. 
  3. Take the small piece and cut into small slivers for the beak of the penguin.
  4. Next take a large olive and cut a quarter inch wedge from it.
  5. Stuff olive with soft cheese and smooth out.
  6. Take your carrot feet and place the cheese filled olive on top, then place a small olive on top of the large olive. Use a toothpick to secure.
  7. Poke a small hole in the middle of the small olive and then place a carrot beak in the hole.
