Olive Penguins | PCC Natural Markets

Olive Penguins


  1. Cut the carrots into rounds about 1/8 inch in width. From the rounds, cut out a small triangle-sized piece. Save both pieces.
  2. Slice the large olives lengthwise and stuff the insides with cream cheese. Put aside.
  3. Grab the small olives and stick the triangle-sized carrot in the hole where the olive was pitted.
  4. Stick a toothpick through the small olive heads, then the belly of the penguin and finally the carrot feet. The penguin should easily stand on its own. Keep refrigerated.
