These Brandy Truffles are family recipe that I've adapted to be gluten free and now dairy free too. They still taste exactly the same...delicious! Perfect for gifts and always for Christmas.

(ish) broken biscuits
I use digestive biscuits for best results
or my dairy free condensed milk (see notes)
chocolate strands to decorate
Either add your biscuits to a large bowl and break up into crumbs with a rolling pin, or pop in a blender and blitz for a few seconds.
Add to the biscuit crumbs, the cocoa powder, coconut, condensed milk, brandy and melted butter and mix to combine.
The mixture will be very sticky but should come together and be pliable.
Using a teaspoon take a little mixture and roll in your hands - you will get messy, it's part of the fun!
Roll each ball in the vermicelli (chocolate strands) and place into a Tupperware container.
Repeat until you've used up all the mixture, this should make approximately 20 truffles.
Pop the Tupperware into the fridge and chill.
To make dairy free you'll need to make your own condensed milk, but fear not, it's so easy;
200g caster sugar
400g tin of coconut milk (high coconut content 60%+)
heat in a saucepan on rapid boil for 20mins until the mixture starts to turn a delicate golden colour, take off heat and cool completely.
