Politically Incorrect Christmas Penguins

Since it’s Monday, the week before Christmas, this is my annual  Christmas/Hanukah/Festivus recipes/traditions/stories sharing post.

As I’ve obviously excluded Muslims from my annual Christian/Jewish/Secularist event, I would like to apologize upfront to anyone who is going to be offended by this intentional slight.

In preparation for this day of fun and diversion I watched no news yesterday or today so I know nuth-ink’ about the Commie/socialist/anarchist/black supremacist terrorists who marched in New York this weekend. Nor do I know anything about the ongoing coffee shop hostage situation in Sydney, Australia where the terrorists - who demanded an ISIS flag butt whose affiliation with Islamic State has yet to be identified. For all we know they could be protesting the use of coffee beans that are neither organic, sustainable or “Fair Trade.” And to make their point, they probably demand “dead cops” too.

Any-hoo, as you may recall that this event was previously known as the “Christmas Recipe Exchange.” Due to an injunction filed against me by the ACLU I’ve expanded to the new, more inclusive nomenclature. While I’m certain it isn’t inclusive enough (see apology above) I’m hoping to get extra credit for trying.

So, since I’ve previously posted all of my favorite holiday recipes - Pear Upside-Down-Gingerbread Cake, Best EVER Banana Bread, Jude’s Pear Gruyere Breakfast Strata, Gump’s Goulash (involves one WHOLE pound of bacon!), White Bean Chicken Chili – I’ve decided to stick with a theme that’s always been popular in the past: Penguins!

So let’s start with some basic construction techniques; first, the Ho Ho Penguins:

Chrismtas edible crafts, kids crafts, holiday chocolate treats, penguin snack cakes, Ho Ho penguins, Swiss Roll penguins

Easy, once you have the instructions:

Next, there’s the ever popular Cream Cheese Penguins that can be used for multiple snacking and decorating purposes.

Black tie events:


Or you can marshal them into an army:


Plan a winter outing:-

Go caroling:


Or have a tree trimming party:


Again, it’s a piece of cake once you have all the instructions:

how to


Cream Cheese Penguins



  1. Cut a slit lengthwise from top to bottom in each jumbo olive.
  2. Fill the cavity of each jumbo olive with about 1 tsp of cream cheese.
  3. (this makes the white stripe of your penguins chest) Cut carrot into 1/4 inch slices, then out of each slice cut a small notch (these will be your penguins’ feet), save the piece you cut out this will become the beak.
  4. Cut a small slit in the center of each small olive and press the cut out piece of carrot into the hole with the pointed end out.
  5. Using a frill toothpick, stack head (small olive), body (large olive) and feet (carrot slice), adjusting so that beak, cream cheese breast and notch in carrot slice line up.

And if penguins are not your thing…well, there are plenty of other cute things on the Hungry Happenings site; like these Weasels, masquerading as polar bears, and the Christmas mice.

OK…now you’re on your own. Have at it. Give us your best recipe, story, tradition, whatever.


Just try to avoid the news, if at all possible; it can wait.
