Paula Barbosa and Christina Bhan by Phillip Romano
Brigadeiro (bree-gah-day-ro) is Brazil's favorite and most traditional sweet. It is a delicious cross between fudge and a chocolate truffle.
Deliciously made with condensed milk, it is slowly cooked until it gets the right velvety consistency, then it's hand rolled into a luscious round shape and covered with sprinkles or nuts. The perfect brigadeiro has a shiny, soft texture and is the greatest way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Paula Barbosa is a brigadeiro addict who grew up in Brazil and moved to New York where she now is excited to share her national sweet with a larger audience. My Sweet uses all natural and organic ingredients and will quickly become a favorite in your home!
