I think it bears repeating that Triscuit crackers are SO awesome for the holidays!

You can go sweet, you can go savory, and you can go sweet and savory too! I have loved Triscuit for my entire life, but only recently did I discover how much fun they are in the kitchen! You see, I’m working on my diligence. That has always been my one weakness in life as a cook, a baker, and an artist. My mom is the most diligent person I know – with her hands able to create tiny art with patience and love. And that’s what I’ve been working on with my food creations. Tiny, delicious art.

It seems we are at Walmart at least every other week this holiday season, so I always grab Triscuit crackers in my basket. They are baked with 100% Whole Great Wheat and are now NON GMO. And they’re available in delicious varieties!

Personally, I LOVE Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil, Rosemary & Olive Oil, and Original, but my recipe uses good old Original. It’s just a timeless crunch and taste. During the afternoons, I pair my Triscuit crackers with cold cuts and cheese. And sometimes an olive on top. YUM. And did you know that Triscuit is amazing for your holiday recipes? It is. Check it:

1 – Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your chocolate chips in 30-second intervals until completely melted.

2 – Dip each Triscuit halfway and place gently on lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.

3 – Wash and dry your strawberries. Cut off the top and place upside down on each chocolate-covered Triscuit.

4 – In a medium-sized bowl, beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk with an electric mixer.

5 – Start on slow speed and gradually increase it to high speed.

6 – Your buttercream is ready once all the ingredients are well-combined, smooth and form semi-stiff peaks.

7 – Prepare a piping bag and scoop buttercream into the bag. On the strawberry, pipe out a dot of buttercream right on top (it’ll act as Santa’s hat’s “pom-pom”) and a border around the bottom of the strawberry.

8 – Place on a serving dish and allow your guests to enjoy!
