Brazilian Cooking – Brigadeiros! 26 July

Yesterday for our Brazilian Cooking activity we made the traditional Brazilian dessert Brigadeiros!


It’s very simple to make; just mix 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk, 15 grams of butter and 3 table spoons of cocoa powder over medium heat until thickened.

Once they the mixture had cooled down we covered our hands in butter (stops it sticking!) and rolled it into balls!

Next we covered the balls in candy sprinkles, granulated nuts, shredded coconut and chocolate sprinkles!

 I’ve given up chocolate for the month (5 days to go!!) and this was by far the hardest day! Everyone else was able to enjoy them though and said they were delicious!
