Remember last month when I made Santa Hat Brownies with strawberries? Well I came up with a new way to jazz up some strawberries for the holidays this year. This version takes a little more work with piping all over the strawberries, but certainly not much skill so I highly suggest you give them a try even if you’re nervous about piping.

  1. 1 box (18 to 21 oz. box) Brownie Mix
  2. Additional required ingredients specified in mix package (typically water, eggs and oil)
  3. 24 whole small-medium size Strawberries
  1. ½ cups butter, softened
  2. 8 ounces, weight cream cheese
  3. 1 pound confectioners sugar
  4. ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. Green food coloring
  6. Yellow fondant or star sprinkles, to decorate
  7. Small ball shaped candies, to decorate
  1. Bake your brownies (you’ll typically need water, eggs, and oil, as directed in mix package) in greased mini-muffin tins filled up 3/4 of the way. You’re going to have to shorten the baking time a bit, so just keep your eyes on them as they bake—they’re done when a cake tester comes out clean.
  2. As the brownies are baking and cooling, put together your frosting by combining the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. Dye it green.
  3. Once baked and cooled, secure the strawberries to the brownies with a dab of frosting. Put frosting in a piping bag fit with a small star tip, and cover the entire strawberry by starting at the strawberry, applying a bit of pressure, and pulling away gently to a nice point.
  4. Decorate as desired.
