My daughter also showed me these sweet little fellows. They are so easy to make and your guest will think you took a long time to make them. You could also use green olives for making ducks.

Prep:

Ingredients

18
jumbo ripe pitted olives (from 3/4 ounce can)
1 pkg
(8 ounce) cream cheese
1
carrot (at least 6 inches long and 1 inch diamenter), cut into 1/4 inch slices
18
small ripe pitted olives
18
frilled toothpicks

Step-By-Step

1Cut a slit in each jumbo olice from top to botton on one side only.

2Insert about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese into olive to fill cavity.

3Cut small notch out of the carrot slice for form feet.

4Press cutout notch into center of small olive to form beak (if necessary, pierce olive with a small paring knife or toothpick to make a hole).

5Using a frilled toothpick, stack small olive (head), stuffed jumbo live (body) amd carrot slice (feet), adjusting so the beak, cream cheese breast and notch in carrot slice line up.

6(Pinguin will stand better if olives are stacked with the larger hole facing downward).

7*Set these perky little party penguins in a bed of crushed ice, and they will look like they've waddled right down from the North Pole.

8*Use regular toothpicks in place of the frilled picks. Then attach a small piece of pimiento to toothpick on top of the small olive for a stocking cap.
