Ingredients
IngredientsStrawberry Santas

15 large, fresh strawberries

30 no-sugar-added chocolate chips (approximately 1 ounce/28 g) (we like Lily’s brand baking chips)

Whipped Filling

8 ounces (220 g) full-fat cream cheese, softened

¼ cup (50 g) Sola sweetener

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup (120ml) heavy cream

Directions
Directions
  1. Make the filling: place the softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, and Sola sweetener in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or use an electric hand mixer). Whisk for approximately 5 minutes, until the mixture is smooth, creamy, and lump-free.
  2. Gradually add the cream, then turn up the speed to high and whisk until the mixture is stiff. Refrigerate until needed.
  3. Hull each strawberry and slice off a sliver of the stem side of the strawberry to obtain a flat edge (so they will stand upright). Cut each strawberry about 2/3 of the way up, so that the smaller piece (the pointy part) becomes a hat.
  4. Use a piping bag to decorate the Santas; pipe a tablespoon of the mixture onto each of the larger bottom pieces of strawberry and top with the “hat” piece, then place 2 chocolate chips on the whipped filling to represent eyes. Pipe a small dollop of the filling on the top of the hat and on the front of the bottom part of the strawberry to represent a button. Refrigerate until needed, but best eaten on the day they are made.
