If you're looking for a holiday-themed dessert that will give your kids a chuckle, this is about as easy as it gets. Pick yourself up a can of whipped cream and a pint of strawberries, and you're good to go. I know I am are among the lucky ones in California because we can still get strawberries through the dead of winter (yes, they still call it winter here - though as my 4-year old likes to remind me, "it doesn't snow in our land".) But it doesn't really matter if your strawberries are not the tastiest ones - you're topping them with whipped cream, after all.

How We Did It

All you do is cut off the stem end (toss that) and slice a little hat off the top (save that.) Put a dollop of whipped cream on for a beard and another, smaller dollop on for the hat.

Adorable? I think so. If you're very gourmet and happen to have black sesame seeds in your pantry, you can add them for eyes (it does make him look a lot more like Santa).

In either case, I bet your kids will scarf them up, as mine did, and clamor for more. Good news is that a can of whipped cream lasts for at least 2 pints of strawberries, plus a few mugs of hot cocoa, as a bonus. Ho! Ho! Ho!
