Santa Hat Brownies

I'm sure by now you guys know I love to bake. I saw these Santa Hat Brownies the other day and decided I have to try them. I've been in the Christmas spirit since way before Thanksgiving even came around. (I really love the holidays.) They're fun and easy to make. The perfect holiday treat. This is the recipe:

1 box of your favorite brownie mix
Round cutter
12-16 small strawberries
Vanilla-mascarpone buttercream (recipe below)

Mascarpone Buttercream
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
2 1/2-3 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Beat butter and mascarpone cheese until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract and salt. Add 2 1/2 cups of sugar, half a cup at a time and beat until smooth. Add more sugar if needed to reach desired consistency and sweetness. Bake brownies as directed on box. Cool completely and cut with round cutter. Pipe ring of vanilla buttercream on top of each brownie. Cut off the base of a strawberry so it is flat and place upside down on each brownie. top the tip of the strawberry with a dot of buttercream to finish the santa hat.
