Healthy Christmas party food

Here is a super delicious and easy party food recipe you can make.  They are perfect for 'bring a plate' Christmas break ups for kindy or school celebrations.

Strawberry Santa Hats

What you will need:
  • Enough strawberries for your gathering (washed and dried)
  • White chocolate
  • Shredded or desiccated coconut
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Small Spatula


What to do:
  1. Using a knife, cut the leafy end of the strawberry off to create a flat and even bottom.
  2. Melt chocolate using microwave or double boiler method.
  3. Dip the flat end of the strawberry into the white chocolate (approx 0.5cm).  Let any excess chocolate drip off into the bowl.
  4. Carefully roll the choc dipped strawberry into the coconut to create the fluffy trim of Santa's hat.  Place them on baking or wax paper.
  5. Cut the mini marshmallows in half.  Using the spatula, wipe a little chocolate onto one end of the marshmallow and place it on top of the strawberry to create a pom pom effect and allow to dry.
  6. Store in the fridge.
