Brigadeiro (bree-gah-day-ro) is the favourite and most traditional Brazilian sweet.
But wait, it’s the same as a truffle, you would say, right?
No, it’s not. Brigadeiro is a chocolate bonbon, made
of a delicious mixture of chocolate, sweet condensed milk, butter and flavouring ingredients, slowly cooked until a smooth texture is achieved. After it cools down, the brigadeiros are rolled and covered with different garnishes.
