Ingredients

18 jumbo black olives, pitted
1 (8 ounce) package onion & chive cream cheese, softened
18 small black olives
1 carrot (cut thin)


Cut a slit from top to bottom, lengthwise, into the side of each jumbo olive.


Carefully insert about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese into each olive.


Slice the carrot into eighteen 1/4 inch thick rounds; cut a small notch out of each carrot slice to form feet.


Save the cut out piece and press into center of small olive to form the beak. If necessary cut a small slit into each olive before inserting the beak.


Set 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.


piped filling into olive, worked well. This is a cake plate covered with plastic wrap before taping it down. The layers are all from one Styrofoam disc, also wrapped in plastic. Also a cheese ball can be used and I even did one cheese ball in shape of a Christmas tree covered in green sugar and place a star shaped carrot on top of tree w/these little guys around it. GREAT for a conversation and they taste good too.

Notes

I have seen these before and they are so cute & they are delicious.

What a very cute idea, and my granddaughter absolutely loves black olives, I will have to make these for her.
