Delicious Santa Brownies

Heey there, I hope you’re all good.

So, seeing as Christmas is fast approaching, i always find my parents are waaay too busy rushing around; buying last minute presents, sorting out christmas dinner and tidying the house. So, they always get me to do things towards dinner or cleaning...IM A TEENAGER, i don't want to do it, but i do; because i care!

Last year, i thought it would be nice to make some sort of pudding they would like, but also be simple to make! I found this PERFECT receipe that i tryed; from the BBC website, i love it so much that i thought i would share it with you beautiful people! So here it is;
  • Your favourite brownies (I’d recommend about 15-20, cut into whatever shape you fancy. Although, i find circles are best.)

  • Some small strawberries, cleaned and tops cut off (use the same amount of strawberries as brownies)
  • Finally, vanilla-mascarpone buttercream (the recipe is below)

Mascarpone Buttercream Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 2 and 1/2 to 3 cups of powered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy (about 2 minutes). Add vanilla extract and salt. Then, add 2-1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and continue beating until smooth. Add more sugar, (only if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness).

To assemble your masterpiece, pipe a ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie. Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place it upside down on each brownie. Top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of buttercream to finish the Santa hat. How simple was that?! NOW YOU HAVE YOUR DELICIOUS SANTA BROWNIES!


I hope you enjoyed this blog, and will have a go at this mouth-watering recipe. It’s truly delicious!
