Love brigadeiros? Then you will ADORE these brigadeiro recipe variations!
Brigadeiro is by far our favorite sweet. Here in Brazil, we are always looking for an excuse to make these delicious fudge truffles.
While most people serve them in children’s parties, we also prepare these sweets for an array of other situations, including office parties or a bad PMS–brigadeiro is perfect for that period of the month. I can speak from experience.
Anyway, these brigadeiros I will talk about are delicious and straightforward to make. I basically used three ingredients: sweetened condensed milk, butter, and an ingredient to add flavor.
You may not know, but sweetened condensed milk is a fundamental part of Brazilian cuisine. We use it in many dessert recipes, from cakes to puddings to tapioca.
That being said, for the sake of keeping this article focused, let’s talk about its use in brigadeiros.
In this article, I will talk about the most delicious brigadeiro gourmet I’ve tried so far.
I promise to keep this list up-to-date with the new recipes and flavors I discover in my kitchen, or who knows, in my grandma’s recipe book–she has loads of recipes that are new even to me.
