Marzipan Pumpkin Bites


I love a good themed treat and Halloween is a great reason to create a new tasty recipe. These cute little bite-sized treats are great for a Halloween party or a simple spooky treat.

They are quite easy to make and don't take too long either!

Slap Ninja!

[Gifted]

We're are incredibly lucky to be sent another great game to review! This time it's Slap Ninja!

When I heard we'd be getting the chance to review Slap Ninja I was really looking forward to it, especially as this is one of the many items that our 5 year old, JJ, has ticked in a certain toy catalogue for Christmas!
