Okay, you know I like everything cute, right? Well, if you’re looking for a simple, very cute and delicious treat, this one is for you.
It is always hard to think of gifts for teachers or secretaries. But not anymore. This teacup cutie would be great for the several teachers you have to give to.
I’m having a cookie baking party this year (I’ll talk more about that in another post) and this is what I’m going to serve to my guests. Do you think they’ll like these little cuties?
So, here we go…….
Begin with a sugar cookie recipe, or any light colored cookie. I actually made Snickerdoodles because that is a favorite of a few of my kids. (Have to keep them happy!)
If you’re in a hurry, use the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix.
I bought a bag of pink and white marshmallows. Take advantage of the different colors of marshmallows and let your imagination run wild.
Use buttercream frosting to lightly frost. (I am just showing how to make the teacups in pink here.)
Cut a white candy mint in half,
and push into the side of the marshmallow.
Next, take that same mint and spread a little frosting on the ends and push back into the marshmallow and hold in place to set.
Take the marshmallow and put a little frosting on the bottom of it (to use as glue) and place it on top of the cookie.
Put your frosting in a bag with a decorative tip and squirt a little dollop on the top of each marshmallow to resemble whipped cream.
Let the cookies set up. Then you can put them in a little clear bag with a cute ribbon for a pretty presentation.
Who wouldn’t want to receive this sweet gift?
