Strawberries are hands-down my favorite fruit. They have been since I was a little girl and that love has never wavered. Strawberries with sweets… even better! Here is a fun and very easy way to dress up your holiday party! Make these cute Strawberry Santas in no time!
1 lb large strawberries
8 oz cream cheese
3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mini chocolate chips
While you prepare the strawberries, allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature.
Wash the berries and pat dry. Using a paring knife, remove the hull and discard. Slice off the bottom tip and save (this will be the hat). Cut out the middle of the berry and discard. Repeat until all the berries are ready.
Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar with the vanilla until creamy. Spoon the mixture into a ziplock bag, and snip a corner.
Place the strawberries wide side down. Pipe the icing into the middle. Top each with the strawberry tip. Add a dot of whipped cream to the tip of the strawberry, and add two mini chocolate chips for eyes.
Keep chilled until ready to serve.
