Classic chocolate brigadeiros, the Brazilian bite-size sweets with only 4 ingredients. Call them truffles, fudge balls or just brigadeiros, they are sure to make you fall in love with them.

I’m happy to be talking apart in yet another awesome challenge set by the amazing Lin, the blogger behind Lin’s Recipes. I took part in a few challenges in past and loved every single one of them. You get the chance to make something yummy that you wouldn’t probably otherwise make; plus you get to see what other talented bloggers cook too. Isn’t that great? I’m delighted to have picked Brazilian brigadeiros, they are such a delicacy, it’s safe to say they didn’t last long, have a bite, and you end up eating all of them. Self-control is right out the window when it comes to brigadeiros.

I have made before Decadent coconut truffles dusted in cocoa powder, they are also made with condensed milk; another great treat, but really wanted to try the classic Brazilian goodies everybody’s talking about. And with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, why not make a nice batch? No cooking/baking skills required, and you’ll have them ready in no time (and save yourself some £10 you would spend on a box of chocolates). You can decorated them with anything you like, from desiccated coconut to coloured sprinkles, cocoa powder or grated chocolate. Easy, right?

Still looking for that perfect Valentine’s Day present or you would really like to surprise your loved one with a sweet treat? These brigadeiros are just perfect. Otherwise, my 10 sinfully indulgent Valentine’ Day desserts might be what you need for some inspiration. Or, why not, just enjoy them all by yourself, you do deserve a treat from time to time. I could not have enough of them, exactly what I needed for my sweet tooth.

  2. Set the pan over a low heat and keep stirring with a silicone spatula until it thickens into a smooth cream, this could take between 10 and 15 minutes.

  3. Butter a large plate and transfer the cream to cool at room temperature.

  4. Once it is cool and firm enough to handle, shape out balls, then coat them with desiccated coconut and sprinkles.

  5. Chill in the fridge for a few hours before you serve.

Enjoy! 🙂

    Oh these sound and look delicious! Cute is the perfect word for them–I love the different toppings. The coconut sounds perfect for flavour, but the pink nonpareils are adorable. 🙂
