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!
