Let’s Do It!

Specialty Gourmet Filled Brigadeiros

Prep: Fill one quarter of your piping bag with brigadeiro by grabbing the middle of the piping bag with one hand and folding the top half of it over your hand to open it up. Gently spoon some brigadeiro into the piping bag, then twist the end until the bag meets the brigadeiro. With scissors, snip the tip off the bag and you’re ready to go!

Filling: Take one of your chocolate shells and fill it half way with your ‘secret center’ (think marshmallows, peanut butter, liquor, or jam) using a spoon or one of your pipettes. Cover the ‘secret center’ with some brigadeiro from the piping bag. Finally, wet or lightly butter your hands. Scoop a small amount of brigadeiro from one of the containers and gently roll it around the outside of your chocolate shell until it is covered with a thin, even layer of brigadeiro.

Decorating: Choose one or more toppings as a base color and roll your brigadeiro shell in the topping until it is evenly covered. Decorate the brigadeiro with individual sprinkles if you like and place it in a paper cup. That’s it. Try to change up the brigadeiro flavors and secret centers for your next two chocolate shells or even make a hot chocolate bomb (see Pro Tips for more info!)

Classic Holiday Brigadeiros

Filling: Wet or lightly butter your hands. Scoop some brigadeiro (not the spread) from the container and gently roll it between your palms into a ball.

Decorating: Place the ball onto a plate of topping and roll it around until it is evenly covered with the topping. Then gently roll the ball around between your palms to make sure the toppings have adhered to the brigadeiro. Add any individual toppings for some festive decoration and then place the finished briagdeiro in a paper cup. And that’s it. Just taste, repeat using different flavors and textures, and enjoy!

Bonus: For extra decoration and fun, fill one of your pipettes with liquor or syrup and stick it into one of your brigadeiros. To eat, just squirt the liquid into your mouth and then take a bite of the brigadeiro. Yum!

Pro Tips

  • If your brigadeiro is too soft to mold and shape, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • For the best flavor experience, cleanse your palate between sampling brigadeiros. Sparkling water, a slice of apple, or water with lemon work well.
  • The chocolate shells make great hot chocolate ‘bombs’. Just fill the shell with marshmallows and chocolate brigadeiro, cover it with extra brigadeiro, and drop it in a cup of hot milk!
  • The brigadeiro spread is great to use on toast, as a fruit dip, or as a coffee creamer. You can also warm it in the microwave for 10 seconds and turn it into a pourable sauce for ice cream!
  • You can use a pipette to fill your chocolate shell (like with liquor or jam) or stick a filled pipette directly into a brigadeiro as decoration. The pipettes can be cleaned and reused.
