I just had to share one of the cute little treats Sue and I made for our birthday this weekend.
We had a half shark party (for me) and a half Disney party (for Sue). I know... I know.... could we be any more opposite.... especially for twins...
One of the shark party treats was this adorable little cream cheese snorkeler.
He makes a perfect snack for summer. Okay, actually anytime BUT extra perfect for summer.
You can whip him up in a few minutes with only a few ingredients!
Bagel & Cream Cheese Snorkeler
1 plain bagel
1/2 container of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Smoked Salmon Spread
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1/2 to 1 tsp finely shredded cheddar cheese
Place bagel on a plate - preferable a blue one so it looks like water!
Scoop the salmon cream cheese into a piping bag (or a large plastic bag and snip off the corner). Pipe 2 "legs" onto the plate, attached to the bagel using a small, zig-zag motion. Then pipe 2 thinner lines on top of the bagel for arms, using the same small zig-zag motion.
Pipe some of the cream cheese into the center of the bagel, then pile some on top for the body & head.
Let chill in fridge (or freezer) while you cut out decorations.
Take a small piece of the red pepper and cut out two flipper shapes for his feet and a skinny snorkel for his mouth (like a very long and skinny "L").
Take a small piece of green pepper and cut out a small sunglasses shape (like a capital "B")
Pile a tiny bit of the shredded cheese on top of his head for hair.
Sprinkle some Goldfish crackers on the plate and he is ready to serve!
Just watch he doesn't get too close to the sharks....
They like him for a snack too!
