Here’s how to make cream cheese and black olive penguins. They are the cutest and easiest fun food project we’ve ever done! We made them with a 13 year old and she was blown away by the cuteness factor! We also made an cheese ball igloo for them. The igloo comes together quickly. Family, friends, and party guests will be wowed by this winter food presentation.

Black Olive Penguins Ingredients:
- Package of cream cheese
- 1 Tbsp of milk
- Jumbo black olives
- Small black olives
- 1-2 baby carrots
Mix together cream cheese and milk.
Slice carrots in to circles.
Cut a small triangle out of the carrot circle, set aside.
Slice the jumbo black olives lengthwise on one side but NOT on the other side.
Cut a sliver of the jumbo black olive out so there is a little opening (easier to stuff).
Place carrot wedges in the hole of each small black olive. Set aside.
Stuff jumbo black olives with cream cheese.
Set jumbo black olives on circle of carrot.
Place small black olives on top of jumbo black olive.
Use toothpick to push down through the black olives and in to the carrot wedge to hold together.
They are so cute as a stand alone! But… here is the cheese ball igloo tutorial for the rest.
