Santa Hat Brownies

We had our annual Christmas potluck at Book Group tonight and I was trying to figure out what to bring and my neighbor Karin asked if I was going to make these and at first I said no but then I thought why not? so this is what I took.  I found this idea on another blog so here is the link:

So cute, so easy, so tasty!  Here’s how I did it:

1 brownie mix plus ingredients to make brownies

frosting

strawberries

1  Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.  Spray wells of mini muffin pan with Pam for baking.  Using small scoop or teaspoon, scoop batter into each well of pan.  (I usually get about 48 brownie bites from a regular box of brownie mix.)  Bake in a 325 oven (or 350 if your mini muffin pans aren’t dark) for 14 minutes then let sit in pans for 15 minutes before removing.

2  Cut the tops of the strawberries off so that you have a flat top on each.  Pipe frosting (I used my favorite buttercream here) with a round tip around edges of each brownie bite (if you don’t have something to pipe with then you could either use a ziploc bag with the corner cut or just frost the top of each brownie with a knife).  Place 1 strawberry on each frosting topped brownie pressing down so that you have frosting showing as a rim for the Santa hat.  Pipe a tiny peak on the top of each strawberry.  That’s it!
