If you are looking for a fun, healthy treat this holiday season, try these super-cute and easy to make, strawberry santas. They are a huge hit with the kiddos!
1 lb large strawberries
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons powdered suger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mini chocolate chips
Wash the strawberries and pat dry. Using a paring knife, cut off the leaf-end of each berry to make a flat surface. Cut a 1/2 piece from the pointed end of each and save (these will be the hats).
In a medium bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until creamy. Spoon the mixture into a ziplock bag (or piping bag) and snip one corner off.
Place the strawberries wide-side down. Pipe a 3/4-inch-high swirl of frosting on each strawberry. Please the hats on top and pipe a small ball of frosting on the top of the hats. Add two mini chocolate chips into the frosting for eyes.
Keep chilled until ready to serve.
