A Taste of Brasil: Brigadeiro

Noe Todorovich

This World Cup has me reminiscing about my trip to Brasil in late 2009 and early 2010. It also has me itching to take another trip! So while I can't be there at the moment, I decided I could at least make some brigadeiro to enjoy a little taste of Brasil here in DC. I even tried to decorate some of them to look like the world and a little soccer ball, but it looked a lot like those failed Pinterest recipes so I decided to keep it simple for the rest of them. ;)

What IS brigadeiro? If you didn't already know, you may have guessed from the pictures but just in case you're still wondering... It's a Brazilian (and Portuguese) chocolate bonbon. And deliciously rich. It was one of those things I never thought about making until my friend told me it was actually really simple. Thanks, friend!

Brigadeiro Recipe

Ingredients

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon butter
Shredded coconut, chocolate sprinkles, chopped toasted nuts, etc. for toppings

Instructions

  1. Combine milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan.
  2. Stir frequently for approximately 10 minutes over medium-low heat until all ingredients are well combined and begin to pull away from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Roll small piece in hands to create 1-inch ball. Note: the mixture is really sticky and easier to handle if you coat your hands with a little butter. Then roll the ball in topping of your choice (I recommend coconut!).
