Strawberry Santas


  • 1 lb strawberry washed
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened at room temperature
  • 4 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips mini-size, to decorate


  • On a cutting board, slice the stem off the strawberry (try to cut it as “flat” as possible since the Santa-berries will use that as a base).
  • Cut the top third of the strawberry, this will be used as the “hat”.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, honey or powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mixture will be thick so it’s best that the cream cheese really is at room temperature.
  • Place creamed mixture inside a zip bag (or a piping bag) and snip one corner off. Make this first cut a bit larger since you are filling the “faces” first.
  • Top strawberry base with cream mixture, top with the strawberry hats, and squeeze additional mixture on top of the hat.
  • Next, snip the opposite corner or the bag (or change your piping tip) and make a smaller opening. Use this end to decorate “Santa’s” jacket buttons.
  • Use mini chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles to decorate Santa’s eyes. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
