Santa Hats

Before going to our Christmas party, my sister and I wanted to bring a cute gift that we could share with the Venezuelan Mafia party guests. We saw this cute idea on Pinterest and decided to make it! Pictures taken by my sister Laura Quintero; check out her other work at Sunshine Photography!


  • 2 boxes of strawberries
  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • Vanilla glaze

Vanilla Glaze

  • Ingredients
    • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons milk
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon butter


    Melt the butter and add to rest of ingredients. Mix until creamy.

Grease a mini muffin pan. Make the brownie mix and place the batter in two mini muffin pans and bake.

While they are baking, Cut the top leaves off of the strawberries.

Make the glaze (recipe above). Once the brownies are ready, take them out of the mini muffin pan and cut off the tops so that they are flat across.

Place some vanilla glaze on top of the brownie and put an upside down strawberry on the glaze over the brownie.

(This actually was an accidental heart that came about when I was putting the glaze to attach the strawberry. Now it is the official BWF logo! Follow me on Twitter @Official_BWF)

Decorate each hat by adding a dab of glaze to the top of the strawberry and also add a border where the strawberry meets the brownie.
