Merry Christmas Eve! First off, I’d like to announce the winners of the stamp give-away! Congrats to Matt, Linda, and Carolyn! Thanks SO much to all who left such kind words about my blog! It’s so much fun to get feedback and I appreciate every single comment that was left! Thank you ALL for your support! I will definitely be doing more give-aways in the future, this was FUN!
So in honor of Christmas, I thought I’d share these little guys I whipped up for my office Christmas party. As you may know, I have a mild addiction to Pinterest…and I know most of you do too! You’ve probably seen these and have them pinned on your Christmas Treats board somewhere! They were just as easy as they look, and are SO incredibly yummy! I give this project 2 thumbs up!
I’ll share my process, although it’s pretty self-explanatory. I would highly recommend Cool Whip Frosting instead of regular Cool Whip or whipped cream. This new Cool Whip Frosting (cream cheese flavored….SCORE!) is a little more dense and will hold up the hats a better, where as the others seem to be too soft and more likely to run. I used chocolate sprinkles as the eyes.
Pre-slice the tips of the berries, or the “hats”…
And fill a Ziplock bag full of your Cool Whip frosting. You can use a frosting bag tip like this if you want, or not! I prefer Ziplock’s to frosting bags because there is no cleaning involved…just toss ‘em when you’re done.
Pile on a little santa head…
Add the hat, and dab a little bit of frosting on the tip of the hat!
Add your eyes, and done! I put them in cupcake papers for easy grabbing and transport
Some are fat, some are small…but they are allllll delish!
I just love these! They may become a regular on the annual Christmas treat list!
I shall leave you with a one of my favorite holiday illustrations by the one and only macabre artist Mr. Edward Gorey! Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
