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.
