Three ingredients is all you need for mustering up these treats for Christmas. Sometimes, while on GAPS, holiday festivities are a challenge. These festive Santa Hats are the perfect taste combination, much like peas and carrots – it just goes together.

Make marshmallow fluff (click here to learn how to make easy marshmallow fluff) with Great Lakes Gelatin (click here for GAPS approved Great Lakes Gelatin). Please note not all Great Lakes Gelatin, as well as other gelatins are GAPS approved and will merely cause more intestinal damage which leads to illness. Click here to learn more.

While the marshmallow fluff is mixing, grease your tray with Kerrygold butter or ghee like this one. Prepare your piping bag so when the fluff is done you can work fast. Piping the fluff and adding the strawberries and raspberries needs to be done quickly. The fluff dries and cracks quickly. If the fluff gets too dry while in the piping bag it’ll give the appearance of cellulite as it’s squeezed out – which is great for making marshmallow bunny heads.

On the greased tray pipe out the bottom of the Santa Hats.


Then, working quickly add the strawberries by firmly pressing them into the center of the hat bottoms.


Work in groups, pipe out the bottoms then add the strawberries, then add the next grouping of hat bottoms. Move onto the red raspberries in the same manner.



Place white dollops on the top of each hat. Since the red raspberries are wetter than the strawberries it’s harder to get the dollops to stick. You may need to scrape the dollop off the piping bag with a butter knife or toothpick.


These Santa Hats are quick and easy, 15 minutes start to finish.


Unfortunately though they disappear faster than you can make them (but LOOK at those handsome fellas!!!! How could a mama resist?!).

*Nourishing Plot is written by a mom whose son has been delivered from the effects of autism (Asperger’s syndrome), ADHD, bipolar disorder/manic depression, hypoglycemia and dyslexia through food. This is not a news article published by a paper trying to make money. This blog is put out by a mom who sees first hand the effects of nourishing food vs food-ish items. No company pays her for writing these blogs, she considers this a form of missionary work. It is her desire to scream it from the rooftops so that others don’t suffer from the damaging effect of today’s “food”.
