I have a sweet tooth, but not a sweet tooth for everything – if that makes sense? I would rather eat a cookie than a cupcake or a slice or cake, and I love caramel and toffee, and jelly sweets.
A while ago I saw a video on Facebook for something called a Brigadeiro – a Brazilian treat made with butter and condensed milk, and I just had to try it! Its exactly the kind of sweet treat I love!
The classic Brigadeiro is a chocolate sweet, and its a long slow cooking process to get it to the right consistency. I wanted these to at least last the weekend 😛 so I made little dark chocolate and white chocolate “cups” to put the truffles into.
The chocolate ones were amazing! A rich, dark chocolate truffle!
There was also a strawberry recipe, but I didn’t have any strawberries so I went with blueberry, and they were so yummy!
There are also recipes for other flavours – a cookies and cream one, and a coconut one!
