    I’m super excited for the “baking” posts this week. Tune in each day to find new holiday recipes from some the BEST. I’m kicking off baking week with these cute and YUMMY brownie strawberry Santa hats. These are the perfect dessert for your Christmas party.

    Here are 3 good reasons why you MUST make them this year. ;)

    1. They are SO easy and will make your display super cute.
    2. Who doesn’t love chocolate strawberries?
    3. Your friends will love you. That’s all.

    I saw this fun idea last year on Erica’s Sweet Tooth and knew the kids and I had to make our own version. They turned out delicious! They are also really simple to make which is a HUGE bonus. ;)

    How to make santa hat brownies

    The first thing I did was grab my brownie bites.

    Next I placed my frosting in a zip lock bag and snipped off the corner. Then I swirled a little frosting on top of the brownie.

    Finally, I put the strawberry on and added a little dot of frosting on top to complete the Santa hat. How adorable are these?! Everyone LOVED them! Chocolate + strawberry is my favorite combo, so I will definitely be making these again before Christmas. ;)

    Variation

    You can make a variation without the brownie bites if you prefer. You’ll need white chocolate, strawberries, sprinkles and mini marshmallows. Follow the simple steps below to get started.

    1. Melt white chocolate in a small bowl.
    2. Dip the bottom of the strawberry in white chocolate, then immediately dip in sprinkles.
    3. Dip one side of the mini marshmallow in white chocolate, then add on top as the Santa hat. You could also use frosting instead.
    4. Place on a piece of parchment paper to dry. Enjoy!
