Sweet Moments

This Christmas I wanted to do something a bit more personal for my main gifts to people. I thought about cupcakes but they would not have stayed fresh for long enough. So, with a bit more thought and some inspiration from mum I decided to turn my hand to making sweets.

This was a new experience for me, having never worked with hot sugar before, but I seem to have the knack and I discovered a new skill. I chose six different sweets to make: Scottish tablet, lemon and white chocolate fudge, Turkish delight, peppermint creams, dark chocolate and rum truffles and peanut butter cups.

I was very pleased with the results and the sweets were well received. I think I might be doing the same next year as well then!
