Just because it is summertime doesn't mean you can't enjoy some familiar Christmas treats. Since it is Christmas in July now is the perfect time to pull out some of your yuletide favorites to enjoy. Since it is summer this is also a great time to get a little creative with the seasonal fruits and veggies that are cheap and easy to find. A great recipe to try out is this Strawberry Santa Dessert recipe from Sherri Foxman, party blogger of Party411.com. Here is what you will need to make this summertime Christmas treat!

  • 1 package of strawberries
  • 8 oz. of heavy whipping cream or a can of white frosting
  • Powdered sugar
  • Assortment of sprinkles
  • Quart-sized Ziploc bag
  • Scissors
  • White plate/display tray

1. Wash and cut strawberries, making sure to cut the tip of the strawberry off to leave a nice fat Santa body and a little hat.
2. Beat the heavy whipping cream until peaks form.  Then, add 1 tbs of powdered sugar at a time until the whipped cream is to your taste. (You can substitute the whipped cream for canned frosting if you prefer, but the whipped cream makes the dessert much lighter.  The upside to frosting is that it won’t melt in the heat.)
3.  Fill a quart-sized Ziploc bag with whipped cream, and cut off one of the corners of the bag. Then, pipe the whipped cream on the strawberry to make a head, buttons, and hat poof-ball.
4. Add sprinkles to make eyes and a nose.
5.  Arrange the Santas on a white tray to make the red of the strawberries POP! Also, make sure to keep the strawberries in the refrigerator until serving, especially if it’s warm outside.
