Penguin Canapés

These are fun little canapés that are great for parties with small children.


  • 50 pitted black olives, about 160g (or 350g in liquid)
  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 50g cream cheese
  • 25 cocktail sticks


  1. Cut a small wedge out of the front of half of the olives.
  2. Slice the carrot into 25 slices about 3mm thick. Cut a narrow wedge (for the beak) out of each slice.
  3. Fill the olives that have had the wedge cut out with cream cheese. Use a paper towel to wipe off any cheese that gets on the outside of the olive.
  4. Put one of the beak wedges of carrots in the end of an olive and put the olive on to a cocktail stick.
  5. Add one of the cheese filled olives and then finally a slice of carrots for the feet.
  6. Chill in a fridge until they are ready to serve to stop the cheese melting out of the belly.

Makes 25 canapés.
