SIMPLE and EXCELLENT! I like recipes this quick to put together! I found splashing balls with a bit of cognac so sprinkles can stick on easier as they were too dry for them to stay on. Worked very well! A quick treat for all adults! THANKS EVELYN!

These are very yum and way too moreish! I used brandy, placed them in the fridge for 24 hours as they were quite soft, rolled them in chocolate hail and enjoyed as part of our Christmas dinner.

This is absolutely delicious! I used 1 tspn vanilla essence and 1/4 cup fresh orange juice with a bit of zest as I didn't want to use 1/4 cup of Brandy. It tastes great! Rolled it in icing sugar and cocoa powder.
