These Santa Hat Brownies for Christmas is such a cute party treat! It’s so easy to make, and the kids can help you assemble them.
- 12 Prepared brownie bites (see notes for suggestions on preparing)
- 1–1/4 cup Prepared white frosting – canned or homemade, divided
- Red gel paste or food dye (I used Americolor #120 Super Red)
- Place about 2/3 of the frosting in a small bowl. Add food coloring until you get your desired color. I used 5 drops, but you may want to use more or less based on your personal preference. Less dye is better because too much dye may affect the taste of the frosting. Use a spoon to stir the coloring and frosting together until no streaks remain.
- Place red frosting in a piping bag, and cut the tip off so that you have a large hole. Put aside.
- Fill a second piping bag with all but 1 tablespoon of white frosting, and cut a large hole. Put aside.
- Fill the third piping bag with the final 1 tablespoon of white frosting, and cut a very small hole at the tip. Put aside.
- Take the LARGE bag of WHITE frosting and make the base layer. I used a spoon to level it off a bit, but you can skip this step if you’d like.
- Next, take the RED bag of frosting and spiral it up to make a shape of a hat. Finally, use the small bag of fosting to create a small “cotton ball” at the top of the hat.
You can purchase premade brownie bites, brownie mix, or bake from scratch. If you bake them yourself, you can either cut out the brownies with a small circle cookie cutter, or use a small tart pan, or mini muffin pan.
