We loved Krista's Mars Bar Race Cars but couldn't buy Tiny Teddies in the UK. We made a different version using McVities Mini Gingerbread Men instead which are widely available in the UK. These treats were easy to make and a real hit with the kids - they are great for a kids party or fundraising cake sale.

Mini Mars Bars
Mini gingerbread men
A few chunks of chocolate
Piece of cutlery with a thick handle
Cup of hot water
Heat the handle of the piece of cutlery in the hot water.
Press the warm handle onto the middle of the mini Mars Bar and push slowly down, melting a hollow in the Mars Bar.This is the seat for the gingerbread man.
Push the feet of the mini gingerbread man into the seat.
Melt a few chunks of chocolate gently in the microwave and use the melted chocolate to stick on four Smarties to make car wheels, two on each side.
Pop in the fridge to harden.
Your gingerbread men Mars Bar cars are now ready to enjoy!
