Festive recipes for kids: Santa strawberries

We’re in a festive recipe mood!

Is there anything more jolly than a strawberry Santa? Probably not, which is why here at The Treehouse Club, as part of our pre-Christmas adventures, we’ll be whipping these up by the punnet load when it comes to festive recipes for kids.

What Yule need

  • 20 medium-large strawberries, hulled for a flat base
  • 100g Philadelphia Light cream cheese
  • 4–6 teaspoons icing sugar, to taste (use a gluten-free alternative if preferred)
  • 40 mini dark-choc bits, chocolate chips or poppy seeds

How to make this fun, festive recipe

  • Cut the top third off each berry and put to one side. Pop the berry bases on a serving platter (extra points for it being a festive platter!).
  • Mix the cream cheese and icing sugar until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • Pipe or spoon 1 teaspoon of the mixture onto the flat strawberry bases and then put the tops, well, on top.
  • Use the smallest piping nozzle you can, pipe mixture onto the tip of each strawberry top (now Santa’s hat) and then pipe some buttons on for good measure.
  • Use tweezers (preferably not the ones you use to pluck your eyebrows with) to place 2 chocolate/seed pieces onto each cream face to make eyes.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Or just eat them all there and then like we did.

A round of Santa-plause, please. Ho, ho, ho.
