Brazilian Cooking – Brigadeiros! 3 January

Last week, for our Brazilian Cooking activity, we made Brazilian dessert favourite  brigadeiros <3


I printed out the below (very simple) recipe, but Brazilian student Lucas told me it wouldn’t be needed as he threw everything in the saucepan, using his judgement over measurements!

Recipe: Mix 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk, 15 grams of butter and 3 table spoons of cocoa powder over medium heat until thickened. Let it cool then roll into balls!

When rolling the mixture into balls it’s advised to put butter on your hands first to stop it sticking; this worked for everyone but me, who ended up in a real mess!

It was only a few of us making them but once we’d then covered them in chocolate sprinkles and nuts more students suddenly appeared to help us eat them!
