With Mothers day just around the corner we decided to make some gifts for both the kids Mum and my Mum this year. This was part one of the gift and part two can be found HERE.

Peppermint Creams are not only delicious they are simple to make, meaning the youngest two members of the family got elbow deep in icing sugar and we all had a good time making them.
