Milky Way Cars With Tiny Teddy Drivers

Last year I posted on how to make Tea Cup Biscuits. A gorgeous little treat for children’s birthday parties and the like. Since making these I have been asking around for a more boyish alternative to make for my sons’ birthday parties.

I was very lucky to receive a text message from my friend Belinda one afternoon. Belinda was at a boy’s birthday party and she sent me a photo of the very cute Milky Way Cars. This was just the thing that I was after – so props to Belinda for the idea.

I made these for my three year old’s birthday at the end of April. The children loved them and the mums all thought they were very cute! Here’s what you will need to do if you would like to make them yourself:

Instructions:

1. Assembling the Milky Way Cars works best in a production line. I set up the bars and allocate four beanies per car. (Because I am a bit anal, I like to have four of the same colour beanies or a pattern.)

2. Melt the choc melts in a small dish. I use the microwave and start with 30 secs, checking the texture and heating again for short bursts until melted. Thanks to Lou for the tip on using melted chocolate to stick on the beanies. First time around I tried icing sugar mixture and it was not successful.

3. Using a thin object (I used a chopstick), place a small amount of melted chocolate onto the beanie and then stick the beanies to the bar.

4. Holding the bar by the sides, press the tiny teddy gently into the bar.

5. Repeat until you have completed all bars. Very simple, very cute and very tasty!

    What a kewl idea!! The tiny teady drivers are hilarious!
    I tried a gluten free/lactose free version of the teacup biscuits but made the mistake of letting the girls help – only one actually made it through all of the production stages without something being ‘accidentally’ eaten!

    Alisons last blog post..Hooray!!! It’s Miss V’s Birthday!!!

    They are fun aren’t they!

    Lightening – feel free to use the idea on your candy craft blog.

    Trish – I used the Milky Way Bars that come in the multi pack (18 I think from memory). They are a bit smaller than the stand alone Mily Way Bars.

    I made them in the middle of the night and hid them until the party!

    My daughters Kindy teacher made the tea cups also when learning about time (Time for tea!)
