Brazilian Brigadeiro


These Brazilian truffle like balls are super easy to make and delicious. If you like sickly chocolate goo like me then this is right up your street!





And there you have it!


The knack with this recipe is to allow the mixture to thicken properly before putting it on the plate. I didn't do this the first time I made them, and as you can see they just collapsed...

First attempt fail...

However, I made them again and thickened the mix, and they went perfect.

You can dip the chocolate balls in other things too, like a dusting of cocoa powder, desiccated coconut or chocolate chips.

Experiment!
