    These tuxedo-clad tidbits are actually ripe olives stuffed with a mildly seasoned cream cheese filling.

      These came out so cute that everyone said they felt bad eating them. To speed up and ease prep time I used flavored onion/chive cream cheese instead of taking the time to mix filling ingredients. I also cut very thin strips of roasted red pepper to ad little scarves. Tip= allow cream cheese to become very soft before piping, it will be cleaner and easier but once filled, refridgerate filled olives prior to assemble to firm up cream cheese. This will make assembly much easier. Pat roasted pepper strips dry w/ paper towel for easier handling.

      I've made these a few times and they are always a big hit with guests! I used a little dry ranch dressing mix, that I added to the cream cheese instead of the onion and horseradish. These are so much fun to make and eat! I added my photo to the collection! =)
