Earlier today my sister-in-law sent me this recipe via Facebook and I have to say that I just went crazy for them! The picture which accompanied the recipe was so cute that I knew in that moment I would be making these by the end of the day.
All you need are some fresh strawberries, not frozen, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Using a paring knife, cut the bottoms of the strawberries to make the Santa hats and then cut out the stem. In a mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla using a hand mixer for about one minute. Place mixture in frosting gun or into a plastic baggie with the corner snipped off, and pipe the frosting onto the base of the Santa to make the Santa head. Put the hat on top and decorate according to the picture (I used chocolate jimmies for the eyes) and you have your Santa!
Thank you so much to my sister-in-law Lisa for this adorable idea!
Have fun making them!!!
