Clucking Crackers

Introduction: Clucking Crackers

About: I love making things for my family, and our home. I grew up in a very large family with a mom that could make the most out of what we had. I love trying to be creative, although it doesn't come easy to me. ...

These are a fun little snack to make anytime. My son smiled and loved them! Even my husband admitted that they were cute. I used a fat free cream cheese to make them a healthier snack idea. The creations are endless with these, you can use your favorite cheese ball recipe, use a cherry tomato or olive on the inside or even a cheese, bacon, or turkey bacon stuffed olive on the inside. What ever flavors you enjoy!

What you need: cream cheese, cheese slice, olives, cherry tomatoes, ritz crackers, and the extras you would like to add if you want.

Step 1: Making Parts

Roll your favorite cheese ball recipe into a ball smaller than the ritz cracker. If you are going to use a cherry tomato, olive, shredded cheese, or stuffed olive on the inside then you would place the cream cheese around it and then roll it into the ball. Cut two v shapes out of the slice of cheese for each cracker. Cut one triangle shape out of the sliced cheese for each cracker. Cut an olive into tiny pieces for the eyes. (Not pictured) Cut a few cherry tomatoes into wedges for the top of chicken and by the beak. (Not pictured)

Step 2: Putting It Together

Place the two v shapes on top of the cracker for the feet. Place your cheese ball on top of the "feet". Then place a tomato wedge on top (for the chicken comb). Next place two olive pieces for eyes, I used a toothpick to help push them in place. Last carefully place the cheese triangle on for the beak, and a piece of tomato if you want some on the side of the beak. Your Clucking Cracker is ready to enjoy!
