In Brazil there is a very popular candy called “brigadeiro” that you can find in almost every birthday party, specially at children ones. The “brigadeiro” can be found in slightly different shapes and forms, but the recipe is pretty much the same: condensed milk, chocolate milk powders and some butter. Put all together to make the candy and cover with chocolate sprinkles.
Yup, it’s very, very sweet. Sweet enough to make you thirsty on the first bite, and feel like your throat is in flames. It’s not uncommon that people dislike the poor candy.
But I like it. A lot, actually! I think it go pretty well with drinks like plain black coffee. It creates a nice balance between the sweet and the bitterness.
