Party Penguins Print E-mail

These perky little guys would love to be DIY appetizers at your next party. Just lay out the ingredients and have your guests make a waddle of penguins. That's what a group of penguins is called.

You'll need:

  • Dried dates
  • Cream cheese
  • Raisins
  • Shredded carrot
  • A little adult help


  • A sharp knife
  • A cutting board
  • A butter knife
  • Kitchen shears or scissors
  • A serving plate
  1. Here's where you might need adult help. If you have unpitted dates you'll have to take the pit out. Lay a date down on the cutting board. Put the knife down the long way on the date and cut a slit. You want to cut the date almost in half without going through the other side.
  2. Take out the pit.
  3. Spread enough cream cheese in the date to fill it. Smooth it down so it looks neat.
  4. Cut two tiny pieces of raisin for the eyes. Gently push them into the cream cheese.
  5. Place a sliver of carrot under the eyes to make the beak.
  6. Stand those perky penguins on a plate and let's have a party!
