How To Make Brigadeiros

What’s that? A truffle? A fudge? You want to know the recipe everyone is talking about, clicking, pinning, and drooling over the internet more than any other this week? BRIGADEIROS! Silky, chewy, fuggy, and chocolaty, brigadeiro, is an undiscovered candy from Brazil waiting to become your next vice.

I’m over the moon and beside myself to tell you some awesome news:

Thanks to Bon Appetit, now anyone who loves chocolate can make brigadeiros!

Just think about all the occasions we have for giving a gift; a bridal shower, housewarming, mother’s day, father’s day—this holiday season!

Tangible expressions of caring and love can be wrapped and given in so many ways. And now, you can add Brigadeiros to the list.

Because a handmade gift, especially a food gift like Brigadeiros, represents creative energy and time spent in the kitchen—like a homemade hug!

Friday Night Rolling Brigadeiros

It’s Friday night, rainy, and dark outside.

I have an event tomorrow where I will bring tons brigadeiros.

I got kids. Two of them. Together, that makes 6 hands to roll brigadeiros.

More hands, more brigadeiros
More hands, more brigadeiros

Singing DJ Got Us Falling In Love, that’s our activity for the night.
