The Happy Feet Two movie is coming Friday, November 18th! Why not celebrate by whipping up some super-cute penguin appetizers before you head out to the show?
Both delicious and easy to make, this Penguin Appetizer Recipe
brings the best out of three simple ingredients: olives, carrots, and cream cheese. So, host a movie party and serve these to guests before you venture to the show!
Here is a step-by-step tutorial for making these cuties:
Start by slicing a carrot to create a small, round circle. Cut out a small “slice” from the carrot round and set aside.
Using a large pitted black olive and a knife, slice from top to bottom to open the olive up. Use a small spoon or teaspoon scoop to fill the inside of the black olive with slightly softened cream cheese. Try using a cheese knife to smooth out the cream cheese and a napkin to clean off the black olive.
Place the cream cheese-filled black olive on top of the carrot round and use a toothpick down the center to secure.
Place the small carrot slice (from step 1) into the hole of a small pitted black olive. Slide the small black olive onto the toothpick to finish your penguin!
Now that you have the perfect Happy Feet Two
appetizer, it's time to think about other party elements for a black + white penguin party! First off, encourage guests to don their favorite black and white attire for the evening and set up your "party table" in—you got it—black and white! A black tablecloth with white napkins and white serving dishes will do the trick.
Next, decorate with white and black paper lanterns or ribbon hung from a chandelier or light fixture. "Ice" things up with touches of light blue to represent the chilly Arctic air!
Give simple white or black party cups some flair with penguin stickers
. Stickers are also a great idea for the kids. You can even print off pictures of penguins for the kids to color! These make great party favors.
