I found this recipe in a magazine and forgot about it. I discovered it again in my recipe file, and decided to make it. They are so cute.

  • 3Set 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.
