Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (10-3/4 ounces) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 167 calories, 10 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 30 mg cholesterol, 153 mg sodium, 17 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Cut twelve 1-in. cubes from pound cake (save remaining cake for another use). For icing, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a #18 star tip. Fill bag with icing.
  2. For each Santa, thread a frilled toothpick through a pointed strawberry half, then through a cake cube and a second strawberry half. For eyes, place a dab of icing on the bottoms of two chocolate chips; press onto cake. Pipe icing to form beards and to add fur brims below strawberry hats. Place each Santa on a cookie; serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2014

"This got raves! It is better to make this fresh instead of overnight but I prepped everything so I could put them together faster. I would push the pointy ends of the mini chips into the cake face so the eyes look better. A little difficult to transport but I used a muffin pan so they wouldn't fall on each other. The cookies are just a base....I couldn't "stick' them on. So, again, assemble that last minute before presentation. I would do these again just because they are so cute!"
