I have been racking my brain for some fun and festive treats for my girls. And finally here it is…Strawberry Santa Hats! It was so simple to make and while it’s not super healthy, it’s better than most of the other options out there.
To make I sat out cream cheese until it came to room temperature. While it was sitting, I cleaned and hollowed out the inside of the strawberries using a small knife. Then sat them on a paper towel to dry. With an electric mixer I mixed 8 oz cream cheese with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I do not have pastry bags so I added the filling to a zip-lock bag and cut off the corner.
I filled the center of the strawberries then sat them on Mi-Del Lemon Snaps. You could use graham crackers or any other type of cookie. I added a little more cream cheese around the bottom of the strawberries and then added a little topper on the hat!
Thank goodness I took the picture as soon as I was done…these are disappearing fast!
