These would be so cute for a little girl's birthday party, a bridal shower, or an afternoon tea!

No-Bake, Teacup Treats

Remember that scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory where he drinks the tea and then eats the cup? Well, here's a step-by-step guide to making your own deliciously edible cup-and-saucers.

The best part of making these sweet teacup cookies? No baking required!


  • Vanilla sandwich cookie wafers
  • Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Cups
  • Ice cream sugar cones (top 1-1/2 inch)
  • Circle pretzels (found in Chex Mix Sweet 'n Salty Honey Nut mix)
  • Chocolate frosting (chocolate pudding, chocolate ganache, etc.)
  • Chocolate or vanilla candy melts

Step one

Cut the sugar cones to 1-1/2 inches. To avoid breaking them, dip the bottoms in warm water for 20 seconds. Using a serrated knife, trim off where the wet area meets the dry. Allow these to dry completely before assembling.

Step two

Separate the cookie wafers and clean off filling.

Step three

Trim off one small piece of the circle pretzels to create two handle points.

Step four

Melt two ounces of chocolate or vanilla candy melts in a zip-top bag in the microwave (twice for 30 seconds usually does the trick).

<h3>Step five</h3>

Snip off the corner of the zip-top bag and dab a little candy melt in the center of the cookie wafers.

Step six

Place unwrapped Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Cups on top of the candy melt on the cookie wafers.

Step seven

Place the cut ice cream cones on top of the Reese's cups.

Step eight

Pipe more of the candy melt inside the ice cream cones, where the edge meets the Reese's cup.

Step nine

Pipe frosting, pudding or ganache inside the ice cream cones.

Step ten

Add a dab of candy melt to the cut off edges of the circle pretzels and attach them to the sides of the ice cream cones. You may need to hold them in place for a few seconds until the candy melt holds firmly and stays in place.

Helpful hints: Have everything unwrapped, cut, trimmed and ready to assemble. If your candy melt starts to harden, just microwave the zip-top bag for 20 to 30 seconds to soften.

Note: These are best served on the same day as preparation. The frosting, pudding or ganache filling tends to soften the sugar cone the longer it sits.

lol The first thing I thought of when I saw these was Gene Wilder, playing Willie Wonka, taking a sip then eating the flower cup! {#emotions_dlg.blush}{#emotions_dlg.biggrin} I always wanted to do that!

They are very cute!

Katey, I'd go with pudding (any flavor) or mousse - I think that much ganache would be overwhelmingly sweet and rich. I think even that much frosting (as the recipe suggests as an alternative) would be too much - but then, I'm not a big frosting fan.

BTW, if you have an Aldi's near you, they sometimes have bags of round pretzels. I forgot all about that until I looked for something in my kitchen.
