Santa Hat Brownies are the cutest little quick simple treats for the Holiday season

Ingredients

– 1 pan of your favorite Brownies, cooled and cut into desired size and shape ( a round cutter was used in the picture)

– 12- 16 small strawberries, cleaned and hulled

– Vanilla-mascarpone butter cream (recipe below)

Vanilla-Mascarpone Butter cream

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
2-1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Method:
Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.  Add vanilla extract and salt.  Add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and continue beating until smooth.  Add more sugar, if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness.

To assemble, pipe a ring of vanilla butter cream on top of each brownie.  Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place it upside down on each brownie, pushing slightly to secure in place.  Top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of butter cream to finish the Santa hat.
