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
Large marshmallows (we used the pink strawberry flavored ones!)
Life Savers candies
Chocolate icing
Vanilla wafer cookies (you can use vanilla oreos or I found some generic scalloped sugar cookies for $1 at the grocery store)
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!

OH. MY. When I had my daughter, I really really really looked forward to tea parties, and these are just a step UP! (SHe's only 9mo's so I got awhile!) Thanks so much for the idea!

And you're one cool American! (not sure if Yank is acceptable). I love your ideas - they're heaps of fun and I like fun:)

Your icing idea turned out great and your girls calling them cocoa cups instead of tea cups is really cute.
