Easy Santa Hats

I first saw these at  a friend's blog & then again at  I wanted to try them for a luncheon I was attending, but did them a super quick & easy way.  You could use a buttercream  or a cream cheese frosting in place of the aerosol whipped cream, but those watching their sugar intake appreciate the whipped cream!!  The only problem with the aerosol whipped cream is that you need to do this right before serving, as it starts to dissolve when sitting. 

I pouch (10.25 oz.) of brownie mix                               
Strawberries, cleaned & stems removed
aerosol whipped cream

Mix up the brownies according to directions on pouch.  Spoon batter into 24 miniature  muffin cups (you could also spread batter into prepared pan & then cut the round shape with a small glass).  Bake the brownies according to directions.  Mine baked in about 15 minutes.  Let cool a few minutes in pan & then carefully remove from muffin tin.  Let cool completely.

Pipe a circle around the brownie.  Place strawberry on top, stem side down.  Pipe a dab of whipped cream on top for Santa's hat. 

Makes 24
