Brownie Santa Hats

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

I saw these online somewhere last year.  I don't remember where I saw it first, but now it is all over the internet, so I don't even know who to thank.  Anyway, these are cute and super easy.  You can get your kids involved to make these as well.  The hardest part might be finding decent strawberries this time of year. Ho Ho HO!

brownie cake mix
vegetable oil
Cool Whip

Equipment needed:
mini muffin tin
Piping bag with star tip (not totally necessary because you could use a sandwich baggie if needed)

Grease 2 mini muffin tins (with spray).  Preheat oven to 350 degrees or whatever it says on the back of your brownie box.

 Follow the directions on the back of the brownie box.  Mix in your eggs and oil well.
Spoon batter into mini muffin tins.  It may only take one or one and half tablespoons of batter.
Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes (depending on how done in the middle you like your brownies.  If not sure, then cook them until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean.
Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, wash and dry the strawberries you are going to use.  You will be using one strawberry per mini brownie. (unless you manage to eat a couple brownies while they're warm of course).  Cut of the tops of the strawberries so they can stand up flat.
Spoon the Cool Whip into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.  Or just use a sandwich baggie with a little corned cut out.  But then you may not have a cute dollop of cream on top to look like a ball.  * Use Cool Whip because it will last longer when piped.  If you are serving these immediately, then you can use real whipped cream but it won't hold it's shape for long . OR if you have a recipe you like for decorating whipped cream then use that.

Squirt out some cream on top of the cooled brownie.
Push the strawberry into the middle a little bit so that some of the cream will come up the bottom sides of the berry.
Pipe a little dollop of cream on top to look like the top of Santa's hat.
And now you have cute Santa's hats that are chocolaty and semi good for you thanks to the strawberry.

These are so cute, and would be easy. I want to make them for our family Christmas dinner this year.
