Building Cooking Confidence

Easy Strawberry Santas

Now that the holidays are upon us, I’m not-so-secretly excited by the thought of eating holiday party food (cheese balls!  peppermint bark!  anything and everything fried!  who can resist?!) but I know I need to not go too crazy if I want to feel like a normal person come January.  These Strawberry Santas are going to be the secret weapon in my arsenal.

Strawberry Santas

First, they are super easy to make, so they can be whipped up in no time for any party.  But seriously, let’s just get to what’s most important, which is looks – can you get over how incredibly cute these little guys are?  How can you say no to these faces??

Strawberries

And (I guess this is the most important) – they are really yummy.  The whipped cream and the chocolate sprinkles give the strawberries that little extra sweetness that makes it feel like you’re eating something really special.  But it’s really mostly strawberry, so you can’t feel guilty about that – especially when they’re just 15 calories each!

 

Easy Strawberry Santas
Prep time (for beginners): 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
  • 1 package of strawberries
  • 1 can of whipped cream
  • chocolate sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Slice the stems from the strawberries and the tips from the strawberries (for the Santa hats).
  2. Dispense whipped cream, about 1 Tbsp, onto each strawberry base.
  3. Place the strawberry tips on the whipped cream to make the Santa hats.
  4. Place two chocolate sprinkles into the whipped cream to make the eyes. Use kitchen tweezers if you have them, since the sprinkles are small and will be easier to handle with tweezers.
  5. Dispense a tiny amount of whipped cream on top of each strawberry tip to make a pom pom for the Santa hat.
  6. Tip: Keep Santas in the fridge if you don't serve right away. Santas like the cold!
