These popular Brazilian candies were named after an Air Force Brigadier named Eduardo Gomes. They look like truffles, are very simple to make and are rich and delicious. Valentine's day is coming soon, so make these candies for your friends and family, they would love you for it 🙂
Keep them refrigerated until ready to eat. Buen Provecho!
Ooo - I can never resist sweet treats! But ones that are so easy to make could be very dangerous indeed . . .

Brigadeiros...we used to make them for parties...Erica, you just brought memories of my childhood 🙂
Brigadeiros are delicious! I love to have picnics and I always ask people to bring something that represents their culture, as we are a very international group. My Brazilian friend brings these beauties and they are always a hit!
Thank you guys!

I love this. I haven't tasted it yet but I know I'm going to love this.
Hope you made enough for everyone on the tour -- these are sure to be a favorite!
simple ingredients. quick-and-dirty process. the hardest part would be the waiting. 🙂
I have book marked this! I want to make this for the special weekend. This will be helpful since I can make it the night before.
I could go for one (or more) of these right about now!
They do look delicious! I was thinking of making these too, but we've had a string of 100F degree days, and I know better than to work with chocolate in a hot kitchen. Sooo tempting though... guess I better bookmark this for Autumn. (Just can't resist lol)
I think I am going to try these!
Thank you all for visiting!
Oh they look so good and sound so easy. Thank you for the recipe!!
They look great..

These look wonderful. I love making my own candies, so I will give these a try very soon!
I made these for my son's party and everyone loved them. Thank you.
I tried making these with this exact recipe. It didn't work and the mix is way too thin to make balls out of.
What is the importance of stirring with a wooden spoon? I don't have wooden spoons, only plastic. Thx
