Brigadeiro

BM # 19   Day 3

Like every year this Raksha Bandhan I went to the Blind Girls Association to do some designing for their raakhis. This time I saw students there who had come from Brazil,  for  a rural project. At the association, the girls  and the staff converse in Guajarati, English for them is like a alien language. They know the basic thank you, good morning etc .So when I went there the staff was really glad as the  students wanted to ask the whereabouts of some products they wanted to buy one of them being condensed milk. Now a foodie wondered condensed milk for what?..one 18 year old girl said she wanted to make a dessert from Brazil. My first question was is it with eggs…She said....No!!..great !!..she gave me the recipe it sounded super simple and delicious. 

raakhis designed by me..made by blind girls.....

I took a trial right away……
1tin .............condensed milk
1tbsp......... butter
2tbsp......... cocoa pwd
Chocolate vermicelli for rolling
Empty the condensed milk can in a non stick pan.
Place this to cook.
Add butter.
Add cocoa pwd.
Keep stirring constantly, scraping the sides now and then.
Cook till it becomes a thick mass.
Remove on a plate and cool.
With greased hands make small balls.
Roll these balls into vermicelli.
Chill and serve.



The Brigadeiros turned out really yummy . I tried making a few with coconut instead of vermicelli, even these tasted great.These are served at almost all functions in Brazil. The prepared chocolate can also be used for filling tarts or sandwiching cakes. Ain’t that interesting!!..quick to make these will be loved by all kids and adults.


Sending these to Kids Delight an event by Srivalli, hosted by me at Ribbon's to Pasta's.
