Oh So Sweet

These are soooo simple to make, any Little Chef can do these. The only thing I didn't let LC do was the cutting of the lifesavers - that's strictly an adults job.

Pop the whole thing into your mouth- yum. Even my husband commented they were really good.

Little Teacups

250g marshmallows
1 packet of freckles
2 packets of musk lifesavers, cut in half with sharp knife
approx. 3/4 cup icing sugar
water, just a little bit

Mix the icing sugar and water together till you get a thick paste.

Put a small amount of icing on the freckle. LC used a knife but I find it easier to use my finger, a bit messy but easier. Place the freckle on top of the larger end of the marshmallow.

Now put some icing on one half of a broken lifesaver. You can use your finger, a knife or dip it into the icing - make sure to hold on tight though.

Now place the lifesaver on to the side of marshmallow making sure to press it in for a few seconds. I prefered having the back of the lifesaver facing forward rather than having the lifesaver front (with the word 'Lifesaver') facing you, I think it looks better.

There are more of these little teacups over at Planning With Kids. They use a biscuit as a saucer which is really cool. There are also instructions and heaps of photos.
