Twist old treats into new holiday fun – Olive penguins with Santa hats


Now I’ve done the cheeseball igloo thing before.

But seeing Smockity Frocks update the little penguins with Christmas hats makes me want to try my hand at it again. They’re somehow even cuter all dressed up. I can picture the igloo with garland or a string of decorative lights. Maybe some rice krispy reindeer for dessert?

Peanut butter and chocolate dessert cheese ball – And Scooby snacks?

Those are Scooby Snacks, right?

Okay, maybe not, but pretty close.

I’m sure this chocolate peanut butter ball would work well with just your finger cinnamon graham crackers, teddy grahams, etc, too.

Want the recipe? Get it from The Girl Who Ate Everything (including half of this ball in one sitting…but she was training for a marathon and peanut butter is great protein, so it was the perfect excuse, hehe).
