Strawberry Santas

Look at these beauties!
I have been looking for ideas for Christmas treats.  We have a few shared morning teas coming up and with the abundance of strawberries around at the moment I thought these strawberry Santas would be a fun idea.
I will give these ago and let you know/see how they turn out.  I have a feeling they won't be looking like the ones below but will have a go anyway!
Are you feeling the Christmas buzz yet?
Do you have any tasty Christmas treat ideas that you want to share or leave a link to below in the comment section?
Happy December everyone!

What you need:
Large carton of strawberries
1 cup of cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat). Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife.  Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cream cheese mixture.
3. Once strawberries are filled, top with the 'hats.' Decorate according to photo.
4. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.


  1. Oh WOW, these look totally gorgeous, what a delicious idea. I'm always looking for easy but effective Chrissy ideas too, thanks for sharing xo

  2. These are such a sweet idea. Have just stumbled across a rudolph idea i might try, will share if i do. mel x

  3. What a precious idea! Sunny would have a field day with these! Thanks for sharing Elaina :)

  4. Excellent! We'll definitely be giving these a go...

  5. Aaaargh! How cute are they? It makes a nice change from all the baked goods and chocolate based treats. I will have to try them out.

  6. Brilliant idea - we only have imported strawberries in the UK at this time of year and they're a bit costly - but I think I may try just a few the kids would love them.

  7. Oh they are so cute (and rather yummy looking!) Such a fab idea. I wonder if I did these in the summer here if they would pass for summer garden gnomes..
    Have a lovely week..enjoy the morning teas.
