{Recipe Feature} Santa Hat Brownies

Erin from Chocolate Wrapped shared a super cute idea for an xmas dessert with us – Santa Hat Brownies! I’m hoping to try this out for an upcoming holiday party.

Santa Hat Brownie Recipe

1 lot of your favourite brownies, cooled; You can use a box mix, brownie bites or make from scratch!

Use a round shape cutter/cookie cutter to cut out Brownie’s into Circles
14 strawberries, cleaned with top cut off
vanilla-mascarpone buttercream

Mascarpone Buttercream Recipe
Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
2-1/2 to 3 cups icing sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
dash of salt

Method:
Use a mixer to beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, (2.5 minutes)
Add vanilla extract and salt.
Add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time
Beat until smooth
Add as much sugar as you feel tastes great

Steps to put it all together

Pipe a ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie
Cut off the top of your strawberry so it‘s flat
Put it upside down on each brownie
Pipe a small tip to the top  of each strawberry, making it look like a santa hat

 

Thanks Erin for sharing!
