Strawberry Santa - Merry Christmas!!

This was prepared following the post here. Her Santa Claus's are much more beautiful. Thank you for sharing, Leanne! They brought a smile on my face every time I saw them. As well as for the number of guests in my holiday party who got a chance to enjoy them - an absolute hit with the kids for sure!


Strawberry - about 40

Cream Cheese - 8 ounces
Granulated Sugar - 1/4 cup
Vanilla Essence - 1/4 tsp


Black sesame seed - to make eyes, 2 grains per Strawberry (optional)

Mix Cream Cheese, Granulated Sugar and Vanilla Essence till it is soft and fluffy.
Put it in a ziplock bag and seal it.

Chop off the stem so the Strawberry can sit on the base.
Chop off a little at the other end to use as cap.
Prepare all the pieces that you need like this.

Make a small hole in the bottom corner of the filled ziplock bag.

Add a dollop of the Cream Cheese mix between the two pieces.
Add a small dot of the same cream cheese mix on the small piece as a pom-pom.

These Strawberry Santa's are one of the cutest food-items I ever saw. 'Almost' felt guilty eating them away! :) They are going to be a constant fixture in all my holiday parties!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Note: You can also have Strawberries with the dip as-is!
