Christmas Treats: Santa Hats

P1000785As you are all aware, I am posting three times a week leading up to christmas, and all posts are Christmas related. So I thought I would do a little cookbook series, within it, and they are all Christmas Treats! So, I’m kicking it off with these cute santa hat brownies and oreos! I thought I’d show you two alternatives (oreos and brownies) incase you have easier access to one or the other. Both look just as good, and just as affective. So it’s all down to personal preference.

All you really need to make them is, strawberries (which are difficult to find considering they’re out of season), brownies of oreos, mini marshmallows and butter icing.  I did use a piping bag to ice them, but found it easier to use a spoon and flatten it down. Also, I cut the brownies into circles, so they looked more realistic.

To be honest, I am really happy how they turned out, I think they’d be great on Christmas day, or at Christmas Parties as party favours. They are so simple and easy to make, but they look really cute and effective. They don’t cost much to make, if you’re on a budget, and they are quick and easy, if you’re running late!

I hope you found this interesting and helpful, send me a picture on twitter if you recreate them, I’d love to know! Also, let me know in the comments what your thoughts are about this new cooking series!
