The Santa Clause 2
My little treat is made from Hostess Ding Dongs and it’s perfect to have during a binge of the Santa Clause movies like The Santa Clause 2. These are some of my favorite holiday movies. They are just so funny to watch with the kids.
How do you make Santa Belly Treats?
First you’ll need to unwrap all the Ding Dongs.
After making a big batch of the icing, then separate it into four bowls and add a different food coloring to three bowls, keeping the fourth bowl white.
Next, scoop a little bit of the red, black, and golden yellow frosting into 3 piping bags. Add a teaspoon of water to the remaining amount of the red icing to thin it a bit. Then, add it to a squeeze bottle.
Add a tablespoon of powder sugar to the white icing and mix until well combined. It will be thick, so scoop into a piping bag.
First, we start with the black piping bag. Pipe Santa’s belt in the middle of the ding dong. Using the red piping bag, pipe the outline for the top and bottom part of Santa’s suit.
Work quickly and fill in the red outline with the thinned red icing in the squirt bottle. Next, fill in the black lines with the black icing in the piping bag. Let the Ding Dongs dry for 30 minutes.
Using the golden yellow icing, add a square line in the middle part of the belt. Then, add 3 black dots in the middle of his suit going vertical. Let them dry for another 30 minutes.
Then, lastly, use the thick white icing to pipe the fur trim on the bottom of his suit.
Pop them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes or allow them to dry for about an hour.
