This sweet treat recipe for Brazilian chocolate truffles, or Brigadeiros, is one of those and it looks so yummy. they are perfect for the end of any fancy meal, or anytime else, because, well just because – look at them!
My friend Regina used to blog at a website called Molly Mel. She featured many delicious recipes that feature Brazilian cuisine.
I love to experiment with International cuisine. My favorites are Italian, Indian and Asian flavors but there are so many other flavor profiles out there that are just waiting to be explored.
Regina says that the truffles are an incredibly delicious and very easy to make and that she does not know anyone in Brazil who does not like them. That is a pretty good recommendation, I would say.
Even though you will find Brigadeiro recipes online that use a lot of ingredients, traditionally Brigadeiro is made using only three ingredients. Regina uses four and adds good quality chocolate sprinkles to roll them in.
Aren’t they pretty up close?
Enough of the admiration! Here is today’s featured recipe from Regina.
