  1. Step 1:

    Melt the chocolate in a medium bowl placed over a pan of gently simmering water. Add the dark muscovado sugar and butter, and stir until melted and smooth.

  2. Step 2:

    Stir in the egg yolks, vanilla extract, brandy and cream. Heat gently, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the cake or biscuit crumbs. Beat the mixture well and then set aside to cool. Refrigerate until firm enough to handle.

  4. Step 4:

    Form the mixture into approximately 20 balls, and then roll in chocolate strands, cocoa powder and golden icing sugar. Place in sweet cases and store in a cool place.
