Why not add some colour, fun and fruit to this year’s Christmas lunch. Try these easy Strawberry Santa’s for the perfect dessert for kids and adults.
You’ll need a punnet of fresh strawberries (which are currently in season) and a block of cream cheese. It’s a great thing to make with the kids to keep them entertained over the school holidays, or to take to your staff Christmas Party.
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
1 cup cream cheese
1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup icing sugar
12 large Strawberries, hulled and cut the top off to create the santa hat.
1 small milk chocolate icing pen
1 small white chocolate icing pen
1. Combine cream cheese, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl and mix to create thick frosting. Place cream cheese frosting in sturdy, resealable plastic bag and snip one corner off bottom to create disposable decorating bag.
2. Pipe head, beard and top of hat with cream cheese frosting, roll beard & top of hat in coconut. Fit the top of the strawberry to the base. Wipe away any remaining coconut.
4. Use milk chocolate pen for eyes and the white chocolate pen for the santa’s nose.
