There are so many options for decorating these little guys. I used what I had on hand, but couldn't help thinking about fun bright ones with colorful pieces of sweet pepper, or using pretzels for legs... use your imagination and see what you can come up with!
Step 1: Cheese Mixture
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup shredded cheese
With electric mixer beat cream cheese until smooth. Add worcestershire sauce, garlic salt & Italian seasoning. Remove beaters and mix in shredded cheese with a spoon until combined.
Cover a plate with plastic wrap.
Shape in to 'turtles' I used two table spoons/soup spoons and smoothed a heaping spoonful on one spoon & then pushed it off onto the plastic wrap with the other spoon.
Chill in refrigerator while you prepare the turtle parts.
Step 2: Turtle Parts
2 green onions
Peel the carrot, then carve heads, legs & tails. Little pieces can be used for the shells.
Cut chunks of green onion for the same thing.
At this point I opened google found pictures of turtles to get an idea of how to shape the head. :)
Of course each turtle needs:
Make them a little longer then you need so that they stick in to the cheese mixture.
Now you're ready to create turtles!
Step 3: Turtles
Serve with crackers or veggie sticks. Enjoy!
