This the most traditional candy and I know it by heart.
100 ml sugar
100 ml golden syrup
Powdered sugar is the same as icing sugar, it the fine sugar that look like snow.
100 ml is about 7 tablespoons. but ask your sister in law.
If you find a drink measurement, they mostly go even in USA in
In USA it is sold under these names
When I was growing up our parents would always let us open a gift on Christmas Eve and then we would drive around through various neighborhoods to look at lights. With my girls we go every weekend in the month of December to look at lights. In our own neighborhood we will walk around drinking cocoa to look at them. I am starting the tradition of making a gift for each of my children every year and that will be the present they open on Christmas Eve.
Those recipes sound delicious and I believe you can find a measurement converter online. My favorite holiday treats are Coconut Snowballs and Russian Tea Cookies (or Mexican Wedding Cookies). My daughters love Peppermint Bark and that is really easy to make. My girls like to get involved with the prep and it can be a fun day of baking.
We always pick some sort of charitable act that we can do each holiday as well. We do things like the Giving Tree, Children's Cancer Association Donation, sending packages to troops overseas, etc. My girls are always told to feel blessed with what they have as not everyone has the things that they do. Never take anything for granted. The best part is that my girls LOVE doing these good acts and sometimes come up with suggestions of their own.
