Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut the hulled-side strawberries so they can stand up on a plate. Slice the tip off each strawberry to make the 'hat'; set aside.

  • Beat cream and confectioners' sugar in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the whipped cream will form soft mounds.

  • Spoon a large dollop of whipped cream on top of strawberry base for the 'face' and 'beard'. Set the 'hat' atop the 'face'. Add a dot of whipped cream, using a toothpick, on top of the 'hat' for the 'pom-pom' and 2 dots on the strawberry base for 'buttons'. Place 2 sprinkles on the 'face' for 'eyes'.

I made marscapone whipped cream instead of just regular whipped cream and used mini konpeito (Japanese sugar candy) for the eyes. Read More

The whipped cream started melting as I was assembling so I gave them out to eat while I was making them. They ate them before I could make more. So they were delicious but not too pretty. Read More

If you don't want to fiddle with these use Cool Whip in a piping bag with a smaller type tip opening. Easier to layer precisely without that "blob" look and the two buttons on front then look 'perfectly' shaped. Read More

Very cute presentation. They went very fast at a dessert potluck. Had to keep them in the fridge until right before serving as the whipped cream began to get soft. Not too sweet at all. Used tweezers to stick the sprinkle eyeballs on. Read More

Cute but better eat them quickly. Whipped cream doesn t stay fluffy for long and you will shortly have strawberries floating In cream. Read More

Was going to give 3.5 stars. Easy enough to do but make sure strawberries are sweet even to eat. Had a few sour ones. Yuk Read More

Nice treat but mine looked more like red bears than miniature Santas. Although mine creation was ugly they tasted good without getting the little ones all sugared up. Read More
