Teddy Bear Race Cars

April 4, 2015 Filed under Children's parties, Recipes

We’ve all had tiny teddy biscuits, or animal biscuits for birthday parties. (My children only had these for special occasions). What a great idea to put them together with mini chocolate bars and smarties to make these cuties for a party. So simple. So effective.  Let the children help. They’ll have so much fun.

1 packet of mini Mars Bars or Milky Way chocolate bars
1 family packet of smarties
1 box of Tiny Teddy biscuits
1 quantity of icing sugar icing paste for glue ( mix half cup of icing sugar and a teaspoon of cocoa powder with a few drops of hot water)
Glue each of the 4 wheels (smarties) on to the sides of the milky way bars. Press into each centre a tiny teddy biscuit. Glue on a smartie steering wheel for each one.

I loved The Smurfs as a kid. Only three apples tall, and blue with white clothing, they lived in a communal utopia of mushroom houses deep in a medieval forest.

Gargamel, an inept local wizard, hated their happiness, and his flea-bitten cat and sidekick Azrael (who was, indeed kicked to the side a lot) was forever hopeful that he could capture and eat one of them. Read more
