These Strawberry Banana Santa Hats are a healthy, easy treat for Christmas!
How cute are these Strawberry Banana Santa Hats?!
Something strange is happening this year. I didn’t think I had the “fun food mom” in me, but here I am, making fun food creations for the kids. (Just a few weeks ago I made these Chocolate Covered Apple Turkey Pops for Thanksgiving…)
It all comes down to this: said fun food creation must be SUPER easy and not take much time. Check and check. These Strawberry Banana Santa Hats are about as easy as any cute and fun food can be.
You can have a tray of these cute little Santa Hats in just a few minutes.
Can I take a minute to comment on the not perfect-ness of these Santa Hats? I used to let that stop me from even trying to make something cute, let alone post it here on my blog.
I’ve realized that it’s okay if what I create isn’t Pinterest-perfect. Can we all just embrace the imperfections? Take a little pressure off of ourselves? Yes? THANK YOU.
What I really love is creating something cute that is also healthy. For these Strawberry Banana Santa Hats all you need is bananas, strawberries, and a small amount of white chocolate for the “glue.” A little chocolate never hurt anyone, right?
Let me demonstrate just how EASY these are!
How To Make Strawberry Banana Santa Hats
- Prepare by slicing your banana and hulling your strawberries. Then melt some white chocolate and set aside a few white chocolate chips.
- Spread a small amount of melted white chocolate on a banana slice.
3. Press a strawberry onto the banana slice with white chocolate.
4. Now you’ll use a little more melted white chocolate as “glue” to attach a white chocolate chip to the top of the strawberry.
No worries if it looks a little messy like mine! You’re going to chill them in the refrigerator for a few minutes and once the chocolate hardens, those drips will peel right off. Easy peasy!
