With the World Cup coming up, I’ve got my mind on Brazil – but more specifically, I can’t stop thinking about Brazilian food. I did some research (also known as looking at photos of food for several hours) and have come to a conclusion – my life needs more Brazilian food in it. During the World Cup, my cocina will become a cozinha, (you guys are pretty smart so I don’t have to tell you that’s Portuguese for “kitchen”, right?)
Since I have pretty much zero experience in Brazilian cuisine, I decided to start out with the easiest recipe I could find.
Brigadeiros are basically Brazilian bon bons, or maybe more accurately, truffles. From what I read, they are the most popular candy in Brazil and essential at children’s birthday parties.
I love how mine turned out. They’re like little soccer balls (how perfect!) … And the ones with the little round sprinkles remind me of Huichol beaded art.
If you want to make a batch of brigadeiros, the recipe I used is on From Brazil To You.
Anyone want to join me in learning to make some Brazilian dishes during the World Cup? Leave a comment and let me know!
