- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
- 12 large, flat chocolate cookies such as Famous Chocolate Wafers
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a small, wide, microwave-safe bowl on low setting until smooth. Place coconut in wide, shallow, small bowl. Place cookies in single layer on serving platter.
Combine cream cheese, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl and mix to create thick frosting (add more sugar as needed if too thin).
Place cream cheese frosting in sturdy, resealable plastic bag and snip one corner off bottom to create disposable decorating bag. Alternatively, use a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Refrigerate 10 - 15 minutes or until firm.
One by one, with strawberry tips pointing up and hulled base pointing down, pipe beard shape with cream cheese frosting at center of strawberry. Press strawberry into coconut beard-side down to adhere coconut to beard. Attach hulled end of strawberry to cookie base with a small dollop of melted chocolate.
Dip blueberries half-way into melted chocolate and affix two to each base of berry on cookie to form Santa's boots.
Pipe cream cheese frosting around strawberry tips to create heads. Use white mini chips for noses and semi-sweet mini chips for eyes.

They look darling and really cute. But nowhere in the directions do they mention large strawberries and small berries and which goes where.Very confusing.
These look really cute,but nowhere does it mention the use of the 2 different sizes of strawberries. or exactly how to attach the small one to the larger one or exactly where the face and beard are located. I imagine one can figure all of this out just by playing with the berries but it would have been nice to have clearer directions.
These directions are amazing, just by looking at the pictures you can see that there are 2 different berry sizes - Easy to follow and my 10 year old can handle this for his classmates for his Xmas party!!! Great Recipe - THANKS for posting!!
These are adorable! My kids would love to make and eat these. They are a nice healthier holiday treat!
making them right now-I agree with the poor directions, however use your imagination-body is bigger than hat, hat has a point. Hull both sides of larger berries, hull only bottom of small ones. use the frosting for beard and top the large berries with it. Stick the small pointy ones on top. decorate hat, put in eyes & nose. Thats how I did it anyway.
