Brigadeiros- chocolate and almond

This Brazilian treat is everyone's favorite there. I DO NOT know anyone in Brazil who doesn't like this. Brigadeiros are a mixture between fudge and mousse, the texture is very soft and chewy and the taste of chocolate is intense. I've always loved it and it has always been part of my life at birthday parties, friends' reunions, rainy Sundays or the consolation after a sad day. 
The "original" recipe is made with cocoa powder and coated in sprinkles but I like to make my own version, for this reason I used chocolate bars even to coat them (c'mom sprinkles are not chocolate).
 

We can learn  thousands of recipes and techniques but the taste from childhood is always in our mind and that is the BEST taste ever !


Makes about 13 chocolate Brigadeiros    
Recipe for chocolate Brigadeiros:
1/2 can(198g)sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup chocolate chips (or chunks)
1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup ground chocolate (to coat)

  2. Your recipe calls for 'half a can of condensed milk.' I dont know how big your can of condensed milk is. Is that 250g? one cup? two cups?

    1. I asked myself that question. I used only one cup of condensed milk. & they came out perfect

    2. Half can; assuming one can = 395g then half a can is 197g which is more than 1/2c less than 2/3c. To make easier, using kitchen scale, pour some of the milk into a bowl that is at a weight of 0 on the scale, so as to not combine bowl weight with milk weight.

  5. Eu fique sabendo do seu blog pelo meu irmão, o Guto. Há tempos eu queria acertar uma receita de brigadeiro que o deixasse mais macio. Adorei a sua. Todos aqui em casa adoraram. Eu fiz a receita no aniversário do meu pai e pretende fazer na aniversário de um ano da Lorena, minha filha. Sabe, que deu até vontade de entrar pra cozinha. Vou tentar fazer a mousse tricolor para o Natal. Espero impressionar!!! Se você tiver alguma outra receita de docinhos, por favor me mande. Beijos. Vivi

  7. I made this treats but the outside is very oily. Is this normal? And they dont hold their shape. I make them into balls and then the flat out with time. How long are they usually good til?

  8. @ Sandra- The reason why this happened is because you heated your mixture too fast and the fat broke before binding/ thickening. It means you have to stir at ALL times over low flame. If the mixture is heated too fast it won't achieve the necessary consistency even when it starts to come off the bottom of the pan. Keep in mind, low heat and stirring constantly . Don't forget to let it cool before mold it. Good Luck =)

    1. This may sound like a CRAZY question, but I'm a bit meticulous when it comes to baking ;). So my stove heat settings range from Lo•2•3•4•5•6•8•HI this is exactly how my range looks like on the nob LOL! What actual low setting do you recommend here that will do the job a bit quickly but efficiently and correct.? Also what is the best pan recommended to make this delectable treat? I would like to say I enjoy watching your videos and viewing the recipes you post. Keep inspiring. keep your passion! ;)

  10. One aspect that creates digital slr video cameras better than the usual phase and additionally photograph is actually to be able to shift dslr camera listings. Basically no 2 golf swings could previously turn out to be equal. Any issue in addition to case will be different, so just why would probably you need to makes use of the comparable accessories time and time again? It's not going to offer the high-quality not the consequence you've always dreamed of. Allow us to check out the basics of video camera lenses so when to implement all.

    Many people believe than a wide-angle standard zoom lens is wonderful for surroundings vaccinations. Even though this is actually authentic, your wide-angle contact lens is usually a lot more handy as compared to you've probabably heard. That aperture will certainly inevitably test their boundaries the backdrop whilst pushing shut physical objects possibly nearer. So basically, the following contact is usually just the thing for taking close-up photos rather than just huge landscaping. It's really a versatile website which may look into the foreground and also the historical past too.

    For people with a definite, targeted matter, you should scared beyond any wide-angle not to mention as an alternative think about the lens quality along with telephoto upgraded lenses. A zoom lens enables this digital photographer to make sure you cut short any focal period to help you either strengthen or lessen all the magnification within the area of interest. Yet need not tricked simply by electronic the lens quality. You need to usage any optical contact lens that can actually enlarge all the impression. Some sort of telephoto zoom lens is fairly very much like a good lens quality and then the variance is actually delicate. When an important contact magnifies, some sort of telephoto can bring the niche better, bringing down the distance concerning the subjects with the photo and therefore the contact lens. This simply means you'll encounter bigger feature.

    Wanting to zip throughout upon teeny miniature materials? Then the macro contact is perfect for you. They've already a short focal length of time that will allow you to please take a imagine away magnified as well as very own with very little distortion. The majority of old digital cameras previously have a macro setting up which will obtain exactly the same mission. Macro lens are actually best when suited for objects that will be presently small to medium sized such as a blooming petal or perhaps a drop connected with fluids.

    Fisheye contacts at the moment are a popular decision amongst shooters, generating a worthwhile competition for you to shots. Typically the the len's was first initially established regarding astronomy wedding photographers which wanted to grab a lot of your sky. At present they are well known among the surfaces photographers simply because may well distort horizon figure. Anytime shooting families, it should supply the overall look of exploring from a door's peephole.

    While you could concentrate on a particular variety of pictures, proudly owning different styles of cameras listings will provide you with an edge, allowing you to turn out to be considerably more versatile in the photos.

  18. I made the chocolate ones twice, and both times they became kind of grainy in texture after cooling. The first batch was were kind of smooth at firs, but became hard, dry and grainy the next day.
    So with the next batch I was really careful not to have it on the stove for too long. But it became kind of grainy as well but only the parts on the plate that were thicker. Where I had spread it thinner the texture were fudgy, smooth and nice.

    Should I cook it for a shorter time, or spread it thinner on the plate?

    ReplyDelete
  19. :( I could get the right consistency
    Its more of a rocky texture than a smooth fudgy texture
    I didnt know when to stop cooking and stirring
