Hot chocolate tea cup biscuits are fantastic for Christmas entertaining and they will prove to be a family favorite. They are super easy to make, and are great little treats for the kids.
Perfect to take to Christmas parties or kids school bake sales. It’s one of the easiest no bake recipes for Christmas that everyone will love.One of the best things about Christmas is curling up inside by the fire having the heating cranked whilst sitting in awe at the beautiful Christmas tree lights and sipping on a delicious mug of hot chocolate.
Those are the memories that I have of Christmas as I was growing up. The reality for me is now somewhat different seeing as I celebrate Christmas in summer.
Last year it was 40 degrees, we had the air conditioning on maximum and it was still hot. It wasn’t the best weather for hot chocolate, but it’s really not Christmas without it.
I find that it’s best to drink the hot mug whilst sitting directly under the air conditioning vent! It’s the closest that I’m going to get to rugging up at Christmas.
The perfect accompaniment to a mug of hot chocolate are these delicious hot chocolate tea cup biscuits.
Marshmallow tea cups are always a winner in my house. Aside from chocolate, my daughter’s favorite candy is marshmallow.
She absolutely loves biscuits (like most 5 years old’s do), so mixing biscuits with some marshmallow AND chocolate, I really can’t go wrong!
I thought I would make these adorable tea cup biscuits to look like a mug of hot chocolate and they certainly did the trick. My daughter loved them, even the hubby was tucking into them.
What You Will Need To Make These Tea Cup Biscuits
Making these adorable biscuits is really incredibly simple. If you are looking for a quick and easy festive treat, then this one really is your “go to”.
All you will need is the following:
- Packed of Arnotts Tic Toc Biscuits
- Packed of Marshmallows
- Miniature Candy Cane Icing Decorations
- Mixed Choco Crispies
How To Make Tea Cup Biscuits
First of all, grab your Arnotts Tic Toc biscuits and place with the icing facing up.
Rather than using all the biscuits in the packet, I chose to use just the white ones. I just think the white makes them look that little bit more festive for Christmas, but you can use whatever colors you wish.
Next step is to place a small drop of melted chocolate into the center of the biscuit for your marshmallow to sit on.
Place your marshmallow on top of the melted chocolate.
Next use a small amount of chocolate to act as glue and stick on your mini candy cane onto the side of the marshmallow. This turns into the adorable little handle.
All you need to do next is use some more of that delicious melted chocolate to add to the top of the marshmallow, which acts as the hot chocolate.
Probably my favorite part is the sprinkle of choco crispies on the top to look like the marshmallows. I love how these also added an extra element of crunch too.
Now you are done.
You can sit back, relax and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate with your tea cup biscuits.
If you are looking for a quick and easy party treat or have been asked to take a plate of something to share to a Christmas party, then you will love this easy no bake recipe.
They are also great for taking to school or kindy bake sales, as they are so quick and easy to make and you know you won’t be bringing any home.
Whether or not you are celebrating Christmas in winter or summer, these hot chocolates you can enjoy in any weather.
