So my son is obsessed with these mini sweet peppers! After he had 5, stuffed with cream cheese, I thought, I should make something cute with these! They are stuffed with cream cheese, but they could be stuffed with anything you like. Hummus, salsa, re-fried beans, the possibilities are endless!!!

Cut the top of the pepper off and remove seeds if there is any. Stuff pepper with cream cheese. Slice a grape tomato in half and insert into cream cheese vertically to make the head. Break a pretzel stick in half and insert into the cream cheese beside the head on either side for the arms.  If using a cheese stick, slice a thin piece and fray the edges a bit for hands and insert into cream cheese. use leftover scraps from pepper top to create a smile and nose. Use a dab of cream cheese to stick to the face. Slice a blueberry or olive into tiny pieces and stick to face with a dab of cream cheese. Top with left over pepper top as a hat.
