As promised, I'm delivering you with another recipe during my holiday break from reading and baking. Things have been hectic--buying and wrapping presents, decorating my little apartment and of course, baking something delicious for every Christmas get-together. For last night's party, I decided to make these super quick no-bake cheesecake Santa hats.
8 oz. Cream Cheese softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 package of Cheesecake Pudding
1 package of chocolate dessert cups
white sparkling sugar sprinkles (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients except the chocolate cups and strawberries. Beat well on high until the Cheesecake Cream is light and fluffy.
2. Put the mixture into a piping bag and fill each chocolate cup up and over slightly around the rim.
3. Place a strawberry with the top cut off on top of the Cheesecake Cream layer and press down slightly. Put a little Cheesecake Cream at the top for the top of the hat.
4. Sprinkle with some white sugar sprinkles if you like!
These are the little chocolate dessert cups I used, which contrary to popular belief (or at least my belief) are NOT found in the refrigerated section of Wal-mart, but instead in the regular baking aisle, next to the chocolate chips.
