    Kellie in SLO's Note:

    My kids have just as much fun making these as they do eating them. They are a fun item to take as an appetizer to a holiday party.

      These had RAVE reviews at the party I brought them to. I used onion & chive cream cheese. I found that it was best to fill the tummy, by putting the cream cheese in a zip lock bag and cutting the tip, then piping them into the olive. Then I refrigerated the olives with cream cheese for about 1/2 hour before I assembled them. Then refrigerated before I served. Also if you use a slightly thicker slices of carrot they stand up better rather then using a thinner slice. These were the first thing gone at the party!!

      These were delicious. My friends who made them used thin strips of roasted red pepper to make scarves for some of the penguins.
