Dipped Octopus

Text read by Mary Peters


  • 2 peppers, (red or orange)
  • Mayonnaise, or cream cheese
  • 2 chocolate decorations (drops)
  • 1 small bowl of dip, to taste


Wash a pepper and cut off a little at the bottom. Then stand it on its end and form two eyes in the lower third using mayonnaise or cream cheese. Place the chocolate drops (baking accessories, to be found with the sugar sprinkles) on top as pupils.

Now place the peppers in the bowl with the dip.

Cut strips from the second pepper and place them as arms next to the pepper (in the dip). Take about 4 on each side.

The whole thing will look like the octopus is peeking out of the dip. This is a wonderful way to spice up a buffet.
