STRAWBERRY SANTAS: A sweet way to enjoy your Christmas berries.

These little guys have been incredibly popular - they're so cute and fun, it's easy to see why.

20 medium-large strawberries, hulled for a flat base

100g Philadelphia Light cream cheese (Note: other brands of cream cheese can be too runny for this recipe; this is the one we've found works best.)

4-6 tsp icing sugar, to taste

40 mini dark-choc bits or chocolate chips

Cut the top third off each berry and reserve. Stand berry bases on a serving platter.

Mix cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth and creamy.

Pipe or spoon 1 tsp cream onto flat berry tops.

Place reserved berry tops on top. Use the smallest piping nozzle to pipe mixture onto the tip of each strawberry "hat" (pompom) and onto "chest" (button).

Use tweezers to place 2 chocolate pieces onto each cream "face" (eyes). Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes: 20

Time to make: 15 minutes
