REVIEW: recipe rating
I used 4 cups Confectioner's Sugar or one package that was 500grams.
Super easy to make, super yummy treat! I used a little extra peppermint extract because I wanted it to be stronger. Great as a digestif and a before kissing mint! :)

COMMENT:
Can we get a quantity for the confectioners sugar? There are many sized packets and I believe that it will be a crucial factor in the success of this recipe.Thanks! :-)
