Arnott's Biscuits are celebrating 150 years of biscuit making. As part of their celebrations they have a recipe for Tic Toc Tea Cups. They are so cute!! When I was a little girl "bought" biscuits were such a treat. My mum cooked lots of cakes and biscuits, but they didn't have the elan and mystique of "bought" biscuits.
I don't think I have actually eaten one of these. Ever. They are a party food, along with Fairy Bread and little pies and sausage rolls.
I am not sure if Tic Toc biscuits and Lifesavers are available everywhere, but I am sure everyone can use their initiative.
And now for something completely different: I've made a video today. So good luck with that. As well as being a poor photographer, I am not that handy with the video setting on my green camera!!
Tic Toc Cup and Saucer Biscuits makes 28
- packet of Tic Toc biscuits (28 in a packet)
- 28 pink and white marshmallows
- a large packet of Musk Lifesavers, cut in half.
- about 100g white chocolate, melted
Gently melt the white chocolate, either with short bursts in the microwave, or in a glass bowl over some simmering water.
Dip the smaller end of the marshmallow into the chocolte and place it in the centre of a biscuit, icing side up. Or clock side down!!
Dip the ends of the half Lifesaver into the white chocolate and stick it to the side of the marshmallow so it is the 'handle' of the marshmallow cup.
Leave the biscuits to set and you are done!!!
