Brandy snaps are a popular snack or dessert food in the British Isles, Australia and New Zealand. They are edible, tubular, brittle, sweet, baked casings that are typically 10 cm long and 2 cm in diameter. They are sometimes served filled with whipped cream.

They are commonly made from a mixture of golden syrup, flour, ginger, cream, sugar and butter and are baked briefly as a flat disc that is then rolled while still hot and soft. They do not contain brandy.

History[edit]

Brandy Snaps are first known from a reference in [1] John Trotter Brockett's glossary of Northcountry words of 1825, with a suggestion that the name comes from 'branded' as in burned.
