Make a biscuit necklace

Make a biscuit necklace

These lovely edibible biscuit necklaces are fun to make and a great activity for a craft party. Busy hands are happy hands! Plus kids get to eat the fruits of their labour.

What you need:

  • Butter biscuit dough (minus the currants and lemon zest)
  • pencil
  • 1 cup pure icing sugar
  • 3 tsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • food colouring
  • licorice strips or string

Number of players:


Make a batch of Butter biscuit dough (minus the currants and lemon zest) and cut out small shapes. Make a small hole with a pencil in each biscuit.

To make the icing, sift pure icing sugar into small bowls, add water and vanilla extract to each and stir until smooth. Add drops of food colouring until the desired colour is achieved in each bowl. Then ice the cookies in the different colours.

Lay the biscuits flat on a plate and let the kids thread together their biscuit ‘beads’ with thin licorice strips.

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if needed.
