  • 6 pack mini Babybel cheese
  • 1/4 carrot
  • 12  edible candy eyeballs
  • 1 tsp cream cheese (optional)


  • round mini bento cutter


  • Peel the outer wrapping from each cheese, leaving the wax intact.
  • Using a small circle cutter, cut a circle from the top of each cheese (see photos and videos for the positioning of the cutter) and carefully remove.
  • Cut the carrot into slices around 3-5mm thick, then cut triangles from the carrot slices for the beaks.
  • Add two edible candy eyeballs and one carrot triangle to each cheese to turn it into a penguin.
  • Use the cream cheese as 'glue' to attach them if you'd like them to be a little more secure.
  • Serve on a plate or platter and enjoy!



Note: If you have trouble keeping them in place, or you need to transport your cheese penguins, you can 'glue' the eyes and beak to the cheese with a little cream cheese.
