You don't just have to suck peppermints you know. You can crush them to smitherines with a pestle and mortar and add the minty powder to all manor of puddings. Here I have crushed five sweeties.
Then I sliced a banana into a bowl, added four teaspoonfulls of double cream, (I know not good for me, but a small tub is a one off treat), and the peppermints. Stir it all together and enjoy. It was divine.
