When our daughter was in high school we had a foreign exchange student from Brazil.

That was a fun year, having Erica living with us. We learned a lot about Brazil and some Brazilian foods.


Brigadeiro, a Brazilian Style Bonbon


   3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
   1 tablespoon butter
   1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cocoa, butter and condensed milk. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest until cool enough to handle. Form into small balls and eat at once or chill until serving.


Brigadeiro Dessert


   1 teaspoon margarine
   1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
   1 ¼ cups heavy cream
   4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
   3 eggs
   2 tablespoons chocolate sprinkles, or as needed


   Step 1 -     Grease a 9-inch glass tube pan with margarine.

   Step 2 -      Combine sweetened condensed milk, cream, cocoa powder, and eggs in a blender; blend until smooth for 3 minutes. Pour in the prepared tube pan.

   Step 3 -     Microwave on high power until set, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from microwave and cool slightly. Refrigerate until set completely. Cover with sprinkles before serving.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work - Edison. Tiny ad:
