Strawberry Santa Hats.

December 4, 2012 Post a comment

I thought these would be a fun little snacks for kids or parties as Christmas is approaching.    Plus, let’s face it, they’re a bit healthier than the traditional Christmas cookies.  I made a batch of these for an after-school snack for my girls, I think they’ll love them!

Ingredients:

1 package of strawberries
4-6 ounces of white chocolate
1/4 teaspoon of vegetable oil
Crystalized sugar
1 popsicle stick or butter knife

Directions:

Melt your white chocolate however you wish (double boiler or microwave).  Add the oil to keep the chocolate loose.  Wash and remove the stems from the strawberries and pat dry.  Lay out a piece of parchment paper so that you can place the finished strawberries on it.  I used the popsicle stick to spread the cooled chocolate around the bottom edge of the strawberry.  Dip it into the crystalized sugar, be careful to just cover the melted chocolate area.  Then I dipped one tiny chocolate morsel in the melted chocolate and then place it on top of the strawberry to look like the pom pom.  I refrigerated for 20 minutes to firm up and enjoy!
