Tea-Cup-Biscuits

IMG_1851 by you.

We had a fair for Possum’s kinder on the week end. There was lots of fun activities for the kids and some great stalls to buy from.

Families were asked to contribute something for the cake stall and Possum wanting to make Tea Cup Biscuits and help me do it. So we spent an hour together on Friday night making these lovely little treats. I have listed below the ingredients and instructions on how to put these together.

Ingredients:

1 packet Tic Toc Biscuits
250 grams Marshmallows
1 packet Freckles
2 packets of Musk Lifesavers
1 cup icing sugar
water

EDIT: Thanks to my friend Lou for the tip to use melted white chocolate instead of the icing sugar and water. It works much better and is easier for kids to use as the glue to assemble the tea cup.

Makes 26 Tea Cups.

Step 1

Mix icing sugar and a small amount of water to make a thick paste like texture. Using a small spoon or knife, spread icing on the smallest end of the marshmallow.

Step 2

Place marshmallow in the middle of the biscuit and press down lightly.

Step 3

Spread icing on to the flat side of the freckle.

Step 4

Place freckle on top of marshmallow and press lightly.

Step 5

Cut a life saver in half. I find it easiest to use a small knife and start with one side only. (I also go through and do the full packets at once.)

Step 6

Spread icing on each end of the halved life saver.

Step 7

Place handle on to the side of the marshmallow. (Sometimes you need to hold it for little to bit to make sure it adheres properly.)

Step 8

You then have your finished product!

Tip: I make a bit of a process of it and go through and do each step for the entire batch, for example, stick all the marshmallows on, then all the freckles and so on. We actually made nearly two packets worth this time.

    How brilliant are these? And so cute.
    I’m almost inspired to make them. :)

  • Veena August 21, 2008 at 8:48 am

    they are really lovely..
    i am inspired by the way you make things happen and the activiites with 4 kids :)
    i have 2 kids and a part time job, it is a bit difficult to make things happen to the extent you are doing.
    But seeing the activities and things you do with kids is quite motivating.
    Keep up the great work..
    Cheers,
    Veena

    Not sure if my kids could cope with all the sugar, but they certainly look awesome :)

    These look so effective – I’ve got a girls birthday party coming up in a month and I’m not that inspired to do too much baking so these look like just the ticket!

    Thanks

  • Leah August 21, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    We made these tonight for my daughter to take to school! Thanks so much for sharing. They’re awesome. Although I couldn’t buy Tic Tocs or musk lollies so had to improvise a bit! ;)

    I’ve saved this as we’ll no doubt make them one day. I’ve had them before and thought they looked relatively easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.

    FANTASTIC. I wouldn’t want to eat them because they just look too groovy.
    Were they a best seller?

  • Candy August 23, 2008 at 10:28 pm

    These are fabulous!!! We were going to make them for DD’s birthday party but I ended up with too many ideas.

    How cute!

    Miss Two’s birthday party is going to have a slight ‘tea party’ feel to it, however her chosen theme is “blue”. I’m not sure if I can make these blue in anyway, but I think we’ll be making these anyway!
