    12 frozen dinner rolls
    8 oz cream cheese, softened
    1 cup sour cream

    5. Remove the dip from the oven and top with the dinner rolls, larger ones on the outside, smaller ones on the inside.
    6. Decorate each pair of rolls with pieces of tomato for the scarf, a piece of carrot for the nose, and peppercorns for the eyes and buttons. Make sure to push them in hard!
    7. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
