a mother, daughter brazilian recipe for dessert for valentine's day

As a major sweet tooth lover that I am, I knew I had to share an oh-so special recipe for my rockstar ladies! What's more, this recipe carries many cherished family moments where my mother and I have baked this famous Brazilian dish for birthday events and holidays. 

See below for a sweet and fun dessert recipe for your Valentine's and/or Galantine's Day events!

How to Bake the Famous Brazilian Brigadeiro:

  • Start off with greasing a tray with butter and place to the side
  • Mix 14 ounce can of Condensed Milk with 1 tablespoon of butter, a pinch of salt, and 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder together in a medium non-stick pan
  • Continually stir the mix with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula to prevent the milk from burning 
  • Keep stirring the mix until you see the mixture form into a dough format and it pulls away from the sides of the pan
  • Remove mixture from pan and transfer to the greased plate you have aside from step 1. Spread the mixture in this plate and let it cool in a freezer for 25 minutes
  • Once 25 minutes has passed, place your favorite colored sprinkles in a bowl and grease your hands with butter
  • Begin shaping the mixture into small balls with your hands and place the balls in the bowl with the sprinkles
  • Roll the brigadeiro balls around the sprinkles to coat all the sides
  • Bom Apetite! You're ready to enjoy your sweet, sweet homemade Brigadeiro!
