V-Day Brigadeiro Making Experience

Love may be the universal language—but chocolate is a close second!

This special Valentine’s chocolate-making experience is all about Brazil’s much loved truffle treat: the brigadeiro. It’s creamy, rich, and every chocolate lover’s dream.

In Brazil, the brigadeiro is also a symbol of bringing people together. Whether it’s for a wedding, a party, or a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, there will always be brigadeiros on the table.

With this kit you can mix different textures and limited edition Valentine’s flavors to come up with unique combinations, including some delicious specialty ‘filled’ brigadeiros. We hope you have fun creating something you can share with your closest loved ones.

Valentine’s Creativity Challenge

Set a timer for 15 minutes. Choose any chocolate, toppings, props, or at-home pantry ingredients to make the most creative Valentine’s brigadeiros. Present your creations and vote. Award categories could include: Best Overall, A for Effort, Best Sales Pitch, Most Colorful, Best Use of Tools, Most Original Flavor Combination.

Explore Taste and Texture

Foods can take on a number of different flavor and texture profiles when mixed together, such as sweet, salty, spicy, sweet & sour, fruity, classic, smooth, crunchy, and more! Choose 3 different flavor profiles and try to make 3 different brigadeiros with that in mind. What’s the most surprising flavor combination you can come up with? See how creative you can be!

Pantry Pairing

Try mixing and matching your brigadeiro centers with other pantry staples like spices, salt, cereals, cookies, and nuts to see if you can come up with a fun new combination. Or perhaps you can try mixing the brigadeiro in your coffee or hot chocolate or spreading it on a cookie to see how the flavor profile changes.

Blind Tasting

A fun game to play with your special Valentine’s someone. Set the scene with some romantic music and nice lighting. One person wears a blindfold while the other creates a special chocolate treat for their loved one to sample. The taster gets a point for each ingredient they can correctly identify before swapping roles. You can even do it at the same time for an extra sensory challenge! The prize? Well… you decide!

Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate can make almost anything taste better, especially if it’s melted. Wow your loved ones or friends with a fondue platter. Just microwave the brigadeiro spread and pour it into a small fondue bowl. Serve with a platter of fresh cut fruit like strawberries or bananas and some cookies. Everyone will love it!

The Heart Challenge

Hearts are everywhere at Valentine’s. Showcase your sculpting skills by molding and decorating a brigadeiro heart that shows off your creativity.
