Ladybug Appetizers

Category: Appetizers, Kids

 Ingredients List

  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. snipped chives
  • 1/8 tsp. minced parsley
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic salt
  • Black paste food coloring
  • 36 butter-flavored crackers
  • 18 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 18 large pitted ripe olives
  • 72 fresh chive pieces (about 1 1/2" long)


In small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sour cream, chives, parsley, and garlic salt; mix well.
Place 1 Tbsp. in small bag, tint black; set aside.
Spread remaining cream cheese mixture onto crackers.
Arrange two tomato quarters on each cracker for ladybug wings.
For heads, halve the olives width wise; place one half on each cracker.
Insert 2 chives into olives for antennae.
Use tinted cream cheese to pipe spots on wings.
Makes 3 dozen. Instead of making the cream cheese mixture I have used Garden Vegt Cheese Spread, or French Onion Dip. I rarely add the antennae, and our kids still know its a ladybug!
