Mini Santa Hat Cupcakes: create these simple and festive Christmas treats with just a chocolate cake mix and a few other ingredients.
The holidays can always be a crazy time with school Christmas parties, family gatherings, and office parties. Sometimes simple treats are just what’s called for and most of the time it’s what I prefer to make 🙂 These mini santa hat cupcakes are not only simple but super festive too! We don’t celebrate the idea of Santa in our house but we still add Santa, Reindeer and Elf fun in silly ways.
These mini santa hat cupcakes are made with a simple chocolate cake mix which makes them come together super quickly. You could also use a brownie mix if you prefer.
Once the mini cupcakes have cooled completely you can pip on some whipped topping. I used store bought whipped topping but you could also make your own. You will then top the mini cupcake with a strawberry that has had the green leaf cut off. Top your strawberry with a bit of white fluff and your mini santa hat cupcakes are complete 🙂
We like to add a touch of confectioners sugar to our mini santa hat cupcakes to look a bit like snow. I would suggest adding the confectioners sugar right before serving as after a bit it will get absorbed into the strawberry and mini cupcakes.
