Let’s just take a minute and take in HOW CUTE these cuties are 🙂

This is the perfect snack to make for any upcoming event – if you do make them you know they will be the talk of the party

Did you know that penguins are one of my favorite animals – yep!

Cream Cheese Penguin Recipe

This is one of easiest and by far cutest recipe I have ever made

I have seen this recipe when I was a kid but never made it since I am not a fan of olives. Let me rephrase that — Olives are on the foods I dislike the most. My brother and I dislike olives while my whole family including my husband LOVES them.

This is why you do not see olives in my recipes — I think this is the first recipe in 700 I actually use them

My dad was sweet enough to help me out with this recipe – because he ROCKS!

Here is my Dad putting together the penguins! He also was able to cut the red pepper thin enough to make a scarf — that part was DRIVING me crazy!

My job was putting the toothpick through the penguins so they would stay up
