Hi Michelle, I'm so happy that you found my Crunchies recipe and led me to this gorgeous, decadent Peppermint Crisp Pudding! My Canadian husband LOVES peppermint crisps, so I can't wait to surprise him - maybe Valentine's Day! I loved the whole post which perfectly captured the joys of growing up in South Africa. I just returned from an incredible trip back for my dad's 80th - after 11 years! It was indescribable being reunited with cousins (now living in Australia) and old friends, and finally introducing them to my husband and little girl. You can read my Ode To Africa for details and pics. (Maybe you've met my cousins in Oz! Which part are you in?) Looking forward to staying in touch - from one former South African Blogger Mom to another! Let me know how you like my Crunchies! http://www.ornabakes.com/2012/10/crunchies-traditional-south-african-oatmeal-cookie-bars/
Oh, you take me back to my childhood when my Grandma was with us... She was from Port Elizabeth, and introduced me to boerewors. Jerky is so meh compared!! I shall have to try this recipe in her honour!!
I am both drooling and deeply saddened. No peppermint crisp here!! OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!! What have you done????????
