Nanna's Vegan Peppermint Christmas Balls

These have been in my family for many years, I think one of the most memorable flavors that remind me of Christmas is peppermint, and it is great to have one of these little balls after a big lunch or dinner. I am happy to share her recipe with you, so you can enjoy it too.

1 packet of Nice biscuits or any plain sweet vegan alternative (even choc ripple)
1 can of Coconut Condensed Milk
