Custard Kisses!

tiny sweet treats

This week I made some delicious ginger muffins, I also made some simple custard kisses. I had three different icings on offer in my fridge, so they got to create a flavour combination they fancied. The biscuits were custard flavoured and the children on the most part opted for chocolate icing, though a couple went for vanilla, and one little monkey kept coming and popping the bickies unadulterated and (un)noticed – he was peckish :).

I tried out my rose water icing on them too – tasted gorge, a little like turkish delight! But I love rose-water – it’s not everyones taste… These however are great for everyone egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soya-free and gluten-freereally easy to make your own – let me know your winning flavour combination.

Apologies for the lack of choc-filled kiss photos – they were all gobbled down pretty fast.

  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix very well
  • Even though the mix seems wet & cloying it rolls into little balls well
  • Roll the mix into little balls and place on waiting baking trays
  • You can leave them rounded or flatten them with two fingers (flatter ones are easier to make into kisses!)
  • Pop into the oven for 15 minutes
  • Place on a colling rack once cooked and ensure they are cool thoroughly before making into kisses

(I made small amounts of each of the above – for each do the following and add your chosen flavour)

  • In a bowl beat:
    • 1¼ oz sunflower spread
  • Beat until creamy then as you beat add in
  • Add in either
    • ½ tsp rose extract OR
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract OR
    • ¾ oz cocoa powder  (you will need to reduce the amount of icing sugar to 2¾ oz)
  • Beat it until it is very soft, then slowly add:
    • 3¼ oz icing sugar

I pop these in the fridge fro half an hour to cool and congeal a bit!

You’re ready to help the kids make their kisses 🙂
