Tea Cup Biscuits

8th Birthday Party Ideas - Teacups

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.
