So. Much. Sugar.
During the holidays, Tobes and I have made this recipe that we actually came across in a B&M email newsletter a year ago and bookmarked for an opportunity. Lockdown has been that opportunity.
It’s not until you’re actually putting the recipe together that it seems like a child’s wish list of what to include in a recipe. These are sugar, sugar and more sugar so definitely not for the more health conscious amongst us but they were fun to make with a 5 year old which is pretty important when you’re baking with children in my opinion so they don’t end up watching you do everything or wreck the room puffing icing sugar around in a scene reminiscent of an 80’s school disco where you were almost blinded by dry ice.
The recipe suggests that it serves 8-10 but we found that they’re so sweet we enjoyed them more as smaller pieces and therefore got a lot more servings.
Fancy giving them a go for yourself? Follow the recipe below!

There’s a little video tutorial to follow here if you like a visual guide but the recipe is really easy to follow.
Would we bother again?
We’ll definitely make these again. They’re nice for a special treat after a meal, a nice accompaniment to a cuppa and I think they’d make a great addition to a party or buffet spread (once we return from the Twilight Zone.) If you decide to give them a go let me know what you think of them. Happy baking!
