Strawberry Santas
Serves 6-8 Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds strawberries 1 cup powdered sugar 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese 1/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Directions Use a paring knife to remove leaves and stems from strawberries and create a flat base for them to sit on.Cut off the pointy, narrow top 1/3 part of each strawberry and set aside.In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together mascarpone and vanilla extract until smooth and thick. 5-6 minutes.Gradually add in powdered sugar until you’ve reached desired sweetness and sugar is incorporated.Spoon frosting into a piping bag fitted with a star tip (or just use a Ziploc bag with a very small part of the corner cut off).Pipe frosting onto the cut, top part of strawberries and rest reserved strawberry “hats” on top of frosting.Gently push 2 mini chocolate chips into the frosting for Santa’s eyes.Garnish with a final dot (or 2) of frosting on the front of the strawberry to act as the button(s) to Santa’s coat and a dot on the top part of the strawberry for the puff on Santa’s hat.
