Igloos Three Ways
Create an igloo for your home theme party.
  • Make your favorite cheese ball recipe. Instead of rolling in nuts leave outside white. Score squares with a toothpick around the outside to resemble ice blocks.

  • Create an igloo with cheese cubes. Use a small paper cup if needed to prop up cubes. Use soft cheese or cream cheese to attach them together.

  • Apple igloo. Cut an apple in half and core out seeds and middle. Lay flat and spread cream cheese or peanut butter around outside. Lay miniature marshmallows all around outside of apple.
Add some edible penguins to your scenery!
