Ahh Tunnock's Teacakes, the iconic Scottish teatime treat of chocolate covered gooey marshmallow and biscuit... The mere sight of the red and silver foil wrapper takes me back to my youth.
For Christmas, I've pimped up the Tunnock's for those who don't like Christmas pudding. These would be great to serve at a kid's tea party, or pop in a lunchbox for a festive treat.
- Tunnock's Teacakes
- Easy Roll White Royal Icing (you need only a tiny amount, so use any leftover from the Christmas cake)
- Holly decorations either edible or non-edible
1. Carefully remove the foil wrapper. Resist the urge to scoff teacake. Set aside the wrapper for smoothing out later with the back of a spoon (What? Is it just me who used to do that?)
2. Roll out a small amount of icing between two sheets of non-stick paper. Cut out with a sharp knife a free-form shape to represent dripping icing - this is a sort of random fried egg shape. Roll some more with the rolling pin.
3. Place on top of the chocolatey dome. It should stick on it's own, but if not warm a teaspoon in a cup of boiled water, dry and gently rub the spoon over the chocolate to melt slightly before laying the icing on.
4. Finish off with the holly decoration and you're done. Super quick, super easy festive pimp!
