Strawberry Santa hat brownie bites... cutest Christmas treat ever!

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. ;)

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. ;)

  12. Adorable, Jamielyn! What a creative way to use the fondant cutter. Pinning.

  13. Thank you so much for this recipe, I tried it today and absoutely loved the result – I even blogged about it if you’d like to see the result on my blog ( although they don’t look as perfect as yours did!

  14. Hi…omg this looks amazingly mouth watering… And of course beautiful. I would like to know how many days can you store them? How early can they be made and still look and taste great!?!? Thank you much

    • If you wanted to make them ahead of time, I would recommend making the brownies a few days before and refrigerating them and then adding the santa hat on top the day of. Once they are made, they only really last a day if you want them to look them same! Hope that helps! :)

  15. my grandchildren loved them ,also enjoyed helping make them :-)

  16. Jamielyn thanks for sharing this awesome little Christmas treat. Your tutorial makes it look so easy. Luv it!

  18. I love, love, love this!!!!

  19. How many will one pan of brownies make do you think? 



    • It really depends on how many strawberries you get and the size of strawberries. I got a quart of small strawberries and had some leftover brownies. :)
