Mix all ball ingredients (if you want to add a finely chopped green pepper it adds some flavor but then there are green spots that sometimes show through the coating, totally optional) and then make three balls each one a little smaller than the one before.
Roll the balls in the parmesan cheese and place on your plate smallest to largest. Use the peppercorns to make the eyes, mouth, and buttons, and add the carrot for your nose (I will carve a regular carrot down to size if there aren’t baby carrots around) … then you can use the sticks for the arms (you can use rosemary twigs if you like).
Once you get it all laid out and ready to serve you need to stick the serving knife in the bottom section … ‘cause it looks so good that nobody ever wants to be the one to make the first cut!!
