Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for these delicious Gluten and Dairy Free Brigaderos Truffles.

I made these box of truffles to put in with a present for my mum for Mother’s Day.  It was the last time I saw my parents before lockdown and I was already avoiding supermarkets so made these from items in my store cupboard.

Brigaderos are a traditional Brazilian treat that is often eaten at birthday parties.  I’ve kind of wandered away from the traditional brigadero and made my own version that works with dairy free ingredients.
