I made these ladybug appertizers for a Relief Society Enrichment Night. They turned out really cute and I loved how they tasted too. Here is the recipe for them.
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.
