30 Nov Recipe For Santa Bellies
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
From ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
(or A Visit from St. Nicholas) by Clement Clarke Moore (1823)
We participated in A Taste of the Holidays at Habersham Winery this past Saturday and this was one of the tasty treats we had for the sampling at our table.
I called them Santa Bellies in ode to the classic Christmas poem ‘Twas the Night before Christmas.
Spoon the jelly into your pastry bag or plastic bag & shoot each bite with jelly so some shows through the top.
These really stay nice and moist thanks to the jelly center.

PS If you’ve been following us for a while, you may recognize these cupcakes from Halloween. They’re the same recipe as Vampire Bites 😉 The name has been changed to reflect the season!
