Last year in April, 10 months before we started our RTW (round the world) trip, I came across a recipe for brigadeiros in a magazine called Saveur, my favorite food magazine because it combines both food and travel. And their photos are amazing!
I set out to make it, took some photos including the one below, and wrote a blog post. You can read about how it’s made and see the photos here: Brazilian Fudge Balls: Brigadeiros
I’m writing about these brigadeiros again because here I am in Brazil where the brigadeiros are originally from!
While at a grocery store, we bought a pack of 6 mini brigadeiros as seen above for 3.44 reals which is about USD 1.75. They sell them by the kilogram.
It’s been a while since I tasted the brigadeiros I made but I’m pretty sure the ones I ate in Brazil taste just like the ones I made at home. But since I ate the brigadeiros from where they originally came from, let’s just say they tasted a bit better 😉
