Firtsly - Happy New Year!

With everything going on at the moment, there’s even more reason to be eating chocolate through January. These super easy brandy truffles can be kept in the fridge for 1-2 weeks, and perfect as an after dinner treat. This is adapted from a Sainsburys Magazine recipe, but with the addition of some brandy - it is January after all.

Of course, feel free to leave out the brandy if you would rather, or try mixing it up with another liquor. Also, try and choose quite a good quality chocolate - since they are pretty dense chocolate wise, the nicer the chocolate, the nicer the overall truffles will be!
