Santa Hat Brownie Recipe

I think these are adorable and arguably healthy (its christmas after all), but I am not very good at baking at all and I attempted to make these following the recipe on the Oh sweet basil blog but they were a big fail! So here is the Santa Hat brownies on her blog as I'm sure they are very lovely I am just not very good a t baking so here is my take on this recipe in a much more basic and less home made way. You will need:
  • Brownie ready made mix
  • Punnet of Strawberries
  • 110g Butter
  • 500g Icing sugar
  • 60ml Milk
  1. It is as simple as that so get a bowl and make the brownie ready made mix as it says on the box as every recipe is different. Then put that in the oven to cook as the instructions say.
  2. Next you need to make your butter icing which is the white bit of the Santa hat. Add the butter and icing sugar into a bowl and then whisk with either an electric whisk or with hand whisk until smooth. Add in milk to loosen the mixture if necessary adding it in bit by bit.
  3. When you take the brownies out the oven leave them until they are room temperature other wise the butter icing will melt.
  4. When the brownies have cooled down cut them into little squares around the length of your thumb.
  5. Take your strawberries wash them and then cut the stalk off so the end is completely flat.
  6. Put a dollop of the butter icing on the brownie which will act as a glue and the bottom of the Santa hat. Next put your strawberry on the icing with the tip pointing upwards. Then add a little dollop on the top of the strawberry point, I used a piping bag to get a pretty pattern. Then you have you Santa hat brownies, I honestly love these so much you wouldn't believe!
