Party Treats - Top Hats

As I mentioned before it's Beckett's First Birthday this weekend and there's been a buzz of planning and prepping at our house for at least the last month. Between decorating, cooking and presents there's a lot to go into a kids party. Even a one year old's party. It's not all hard work though.

I quickly realised that planning a kids party is a fantastic trip down memory lane, filled with wonderful nostalgia. One thing in particular that came back to me were the memories of the treats that we used to get at parties when I was a child. These days it always seems to be store bought stuff whereas all I remember were home made treats. And not just Rice Krispie Buns!

One of my favourite party treats was always Top Hats. Simple but super delicious. Now to introduce a new generation to an old skool treat!

Christian's Top Hat Treats

Milk Chocolate (not cheap!)
Muffin cases

Melt the chocolate over a gentle heat in a bowl placed in a saucepan of hot water. Pour a small amount of the chocolate into the muffin cases (5mm deep) and place a marshmallow in each one.

Now place a small dab of chocolate on top of each marshmallow and put a Smartie or Jellytot on. Alternate between toppers and colours of marshmallow. Put all the muffin cases on a tray and pop it into the fridge until the chocolate sets.

Keep them in the fridge until just before your little monsters are ready for them. Now all you have to do is peel off the muffin cases and line them up on a plate ready to be devoured!
