Watch Soul Sweet Boutique Make Brazilian Brigadeiros Step by Step
Brazilian brigadeiros (think bonbons or truffles) are loved all over the world. And it’s no wonder. The chocolate fudge balls appeal to sweet lovers of all ages. They are a staple food at Brazilian and Portuguese parties, and once you try them, they will no doubt become a part of your dessert spread.
For children’s birthday parties, serve the chocolate candies in colorful wrappers to match the party’s theme. In Brazil, we usually place them around the birthday cake and hope little hands don’t get to them until after dinner. (Good luck with that!)
Adults also go wild for brigadeiros. The sprinkle-covered bites can be elevated into luxurious confections when rolled in bits of chocolate. Give them a touch of sparkle with edible glitter or luxe luster dusts.
Here's a step-by-step look at what goes into making brigadeiros at Soul Sweet Boutique.
