Tiny Teddy Cars

This is a really good recipe if you have young ones at home. It looks cute and is the perfect snack for them when they come home from school. It's not exactly the most healthy snack but it should carry their chocolate craving for the day. It doesn't take a long time to make. Hopefully when you and your child make these, it turns out well and yummy!


Prep Time:

20 mins

Cook Time:

2 mins


  • 100g milk chocolate, melted
  • 1 bag Milky Way bars (you will need 24)
  • 1 box Tiny Teddy biscuits, honey flavour
  • 1 bag Smarties (340g)


Set out a tray or serving plate for the Teddies.
Sort the Smarties into colours and cut 12 Smarties in half with a sharp knife to use for steering wheels (keep in mind steering wheel colours need to match with wheel colours).
Remove the wrappers from the Milky Way bars.
Cut 24 Tiny Teddies in half at the belly button using a sharp knife.
Place the melted chocolate into a resealable bag and snip a tiny corner off. Squeeze out a few drops of chocolate to glue 4 Smarties 'wheels' on each car then place on the serving tray.
Place a few drops of chocolate on the top of each 'car' and sit the Teddy's on. Place a drop of chocolate on the 'car' in the front of each Teddy and glue on steering wheels

Cheesecake Cookie Bars

I made this for my family's New Year's Day dinner last night and have yet to have it with my family. It looks pretty good so far. I love how I test things with my family first. They're kind of like my lab rats! I hope it all goes well.

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter, melted
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
 1 tsp vanilla
Fresh Strawberries, for garnish, if desired (I'm using raspberries, the strawberries looked awful!)

Mix brown sugar, flour, pecans and melted butter. Reserve 1/3 cup crumbs and press remaining into an 8" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare filling. Blend cream cheese and sugar well. Beat in remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour evenly over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Return to oven and continue baking for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until set. Once cooled, cut into squares and then diagonally to make a triangle shape. Garnish with fresh strawberry halves, if desired.
