Yesterday my friend Corey posted a picture on facebook of a dessert that looked so yummy! After I saw the picture I thought about it a couple times and totally decided that next time I was at the grocery store I would get the things to make it. In my mind I was gonna make it from scratch but after discovering that I could make it with 3 ingredients I changed my mind about the from scratch idea. This is so simple and so cute and all you need are three things: Brownies, icing and fresh strawberries.
I was so amazed when I went into the icing aisle. Can you believe they make it in a can now? How easy is that to use! They had a few different flavors but I went with the creamy cream cheese flavor.
The first thing I did was put some of the brownies on a plate.
Then I washed and cut the strawberries.
Next up was the icing. The icing has a fancy tip on it so it comes out really pretty.
I however didn’t want the pretty, I wanted it to look smooth. I used a spoon and super hot water to make it look smooth.
Not to shabby, eh?
Next up I put the strawberries on top.
All I needed to do now was add the little ball on top. I knew the icing wouldn’t do what I wanted it to right out of the can so I had to get out my tools.
I used the smallest tip I could find and topped each strawberry with a ball of icing.
I love the way they turned out. I also loved Lily’s and JP’s reaction when they saw them. These Brownie Santa Hat desserts were not just pretty they were also seriously delicious!!
