Strawberry Santa Hats

There is nothing easier and more fun than strawberry-shaped Santa hats.

Strawberry Santa Hats

First of all, don’t bake. If you’re like me, you’re sick of baking after the first 2 dozen cookies, so these are a relief.

Secondly, they are much healthier than regular cookies, which makes them fun and subversive. That’s my kind of Christmas gift!

I’ve made Santa hats with ricotta and Santa hats with whipped cream, but both versions had problems.

This, my loyal followers, is my favorite version so far. This year, I added a video to inspire you to make these because they are so easy.

I used white candy melts (but you can use white chocolate), unsweetened coconut, and mini marshmallows. The fringe at the bottom is what sold me on this version, as well as the coconut and strawberry flavor combination (yum!).

Melt the chocolate in 20 second intervals on medium power in the microwave. Cut the green leaves from the strawberry and dip the flat section into the chocolate and then into the coconut.

Place it on a sheet of parchment paper or a non-stick surface.

Cut the marshmallows in half with a paring knife (or they will look too big), dip them in the chocolate, and place them on the tip of the strawberry. Voila!

Serve them at brunch or as dessert. I love making them with Christmas cookies to encourage my kids to eat some fruit. This works!

They also look very pretty on a cake as a decoration or around the base of the cake. You cut them in half and stick them on the side of a cake, right?

I found unsweetened coconut in my baking aisle, but you may have to go to the Natural Foods section or a specialty store like Whole Foods. I don’t know why it’s so hard to find because it tastes AMAZING without sugar.

The sugar in the chocolate is enough to sweeten the entire candy.
