Gaby's Bakery - Brazilian Chocolate Truffles

Our international culinary tour stops off at Brazil today for one of their most classic desserts – Brigadeiros, a chocolate truffle speciality.

Brazilian Chocolate Truffles

400g (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
30g unsalted butter
20g cocoa powder
Pinch of salt

Topping to decorate:
chocolate sprinkles
chopped pistachios
desiccated coconut

In a saucepan heat the condensed milk, butter, cocoa powder and salt until it boils, then reduce heat to medium and cook for appx 10 mins, stirring so it doesn’t burn until it is thick and sticks to the wooden spoon. Once ready, pour mixture into a bowl and allow to cool for a couple of hours.

Place your toppings in small bowl. Butter your hands to stop the mixture sticking to them and then take dessertspoon size amounts of the mixture and roll into balls. 

Roll these in the bowls with toppings and then place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge to set.

This seasonal shift beckons us to assess, repair and renew, ready for the next chapter. Investing in

Farewell Mum ❤️ 1923 – 2022

September 10, 2022

I’ve spent 20 years worrying about Mum (mostly needlessly) and thinking of this day. But it still didn’t prepare me for the sudden loss of the enormous energy field she held and the waves of grief that follow. Grief… the price you pay for love, as Queen Elizabeth II said. RIP - mother figure of our nation. Another shock this week. We’re all carrying much sadness.
