Brigadeiro is a traditional Brazilian sweet made with few ingredients and easy to prepare. It originated in the immediate post-war period from the idea of a pastry chef from Rio de Janeiro who wanted to support Eduardo Gomes (known as Brigadier) in the presidential elections. Although Gomez later lost the elections, this sweet became popular throughout the country. Surprise your mom with this by using our heart-shaped mold to show her how much you love her.
