With studying about Brazil, I was trying to come up with a food that everyone would possibly eat. I know they said they would all try whatever it was we made, but I didn’t want to force something completely awful on them in the beginning. 😉 Three ladies from Brazil told me their way that they made Brigadeiros. They were named after Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes, a very famous Air Force commander from the forties. I think it was something about his wife making these desserts when they had people over and everyone would always ask where the Brigadeiros desserts were. Kind of a neat story. Anyway, there are a bunch of different recipes floating around, but I just stuck with this one. Very simple ingredients, easy to make…just a lot of stirring… ha! The recipe is down below! Let me know if you make these! I feel bad not planning better with the plate and counter and such, but we made these so late at night it was silly.
