You can easily make these little Santas as a holiday dessert yourself. All you need are strawberries, whipped cream, and some chocolate sprinkles to turn a strawberry into a Santa. Your kids will love these yummy treats and can help put them together.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate sprinkles

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Cut the hulled-side strawberries so they can stand up on a plate. Slice the tip off each strawberry to make the 'hat'; set aside.
  2. 2 Beat cream and confectioners' sugar in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the whipped cream will form soft mounds.
  3. 3 Spoon a large dollop of whipped cream on top of strawberry base for the 'face' and 'beard'. Set the 'hat' atop the 'face'. Add a dot of whipped cream, using a toothpick, on top of the 'hat' for the 'pom-pom' and 2 dots on the strawberry base for 'buttons'. Place 2 sprinkles on the 'face' for 'eyes'.

  1. I made these the night before and left them in the fridge. A few of the “hats” slipped off and had to be reset but overall they looked great. They were eaten up before I even got one!
  2. The whipped cream started melting as I was assembling so I gave them out to eat while I was making them. They ate them before I could make more. So they were delicious but not too pretty.
  3. Very cute presentation. They went very fast at a dessert potluck. Had to keep them in the fridge until right before serving as the whipped cream began to get soft. Not too sweet at all. Used tweezers to stick the sprinkle eyeballs on.
  4. Cute but better eat them quickly. Whipped cream doesn t stay fluffy for long and you will shortly have strawberries floating In cream.
  5. Was going to give 3.5 stars. Easy enough to do but make sure strawberries are sweet even to eat. Had a few sour ones. Yuk
  6. If you don't want to fiddle with these use Cool Whip in a piping bag with a smaller type tip opening. Easier to layer precisely without that "blob" look and the two buttons on front then look 'perfectly' shaped.
  7. Oh my god! This is so good?? I love it
  8. I made marscapone whipped cream instead of just regular whipped cream and used mini konpeito (Japanese sugar candy) for the eyes.
  9. These are tasty (not too sweet) and easy to make. Just know that to get the cream going, mix at a high speed.
  10. I ended up adding red sprinkles for the mouth/nose as well. kids gobbled them up in no time :-)
