Last Strawberry Santa Hats post – I promise! Are you sick of them yet? This is going to be the last one, mainly because strawberries are finally getting a little too unpalatable. I only managed to rescue six nice looking strawberries out of a whole pound, but that’s OK, because the rest of them became a delicious batch of strawberry and chocolate chip ice cream. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the final Santa Hats!
These Strawberry Santa Hats are sitting pretty on top of tiny little ganache-filled chocolate tartlets. The crust is a shortbread-like crust, which should be fairly thick for sturdiness. You wouldn’t want your mother in law to bite into a thin, flimsy tart and end up with a big chocolate and strawberry mess all over her fancy party dress, would you? You’d never hear the end of it!
I used two-inch mini tartlet tins like these, but you could probably make them in a regular sized muffin tin too. You would only get maybe eight or nine out of one batch instead of twelve. I just love how tiny these are, and they only cost me around sixty cents each at Bed Bath & Beyond!

As customary, here is a little peek inside:
My strawberries were flled with coconut whipped cream.
That’s it! The Strawberry Santa Hats have made their final appearance on Wing It. Will you be making any Strawberry Santa Hats this season? Good luck finding pretty berries that don’t taste like solid water! :)
