Teacup Treats

The Sugar Fairy is one cool Aussie, I love her blog, Enchanted Kitchen.
The other day, I saw her adorable Sweet Teacups and knew I needed to make some! I made a few changes...we don't have freckles candies available in the US but I liked the look of substituting icing with sprinkles. I also added a little cookie saucer, perfect for little fingers!
These are super-easy for the kids to put together and make for one fancy tea party, "T" snack, or playdate treat! Enjoy!

Teacup Treats
Ingredients:
Large marshmallows (we used the pink strawberry flavored ones!)
Life Savers candies
Chocolate icing
Sprinkles
Vanilla wafer cookies (you can use vanilla oreos or I found some generic scalloped sugar cookies for $1 at the grocery store)
Directions:
Place a cookie on your plate as your "saucer".
Spread chocolate icing on the top of a marshmallow and garnish with sprinkles of your choice. Add a dab of icing to the bottom and place it on the cookie saucer.
With a serrated knife, carefully cut a life savers candy in half. Adhere to your "teacup" with a little icing.
My girls like to call these "cocoa cups" since we don't drink tea. :) Either way, they disappered in a flash!
