Truffles are SO Christmas 2012.
If you want to impress this holiday season, brigadeiros are the way to go. These Brazilian sweets are made by reducing sweetened condensed milk and blending it with chocolate, coconut milk or ground pistachios. And they taste… well, they taste like something that’s been made by reducing sweetened condensed milk and blending it with chocolate, coconut milk or ground pistachios (read: delicious).
Perhaps more importantly, look at these things. Look at them. Tell me these aren’t festive as fuck?
You go to Michael’s and get some of those little bon-bon favour boxes. Throw a couple of these suckers in there. Bam! Amazing gift.
Come to think of it – make one of those DIY Glitter Mugs that we link to in our gift guide, fill it with these brigadeiros – Congratulations! You’ve just won Christmas.
If you’re too lazy to make all three varieties, just go ahead and make the coconut ones. Call them “snowballs” or something. That’d be pretty good too.
