Ok. This is a famous Brazilian dessert. Its very good and sweet. I dont know one person who dont like this, and believe me when I say, its very Yumiii!! I made this for a friend to take to a Christmas Party and I think it was abig hit! Here is the recipe if anybody wants to try !!!

250 grams of unsalted butter
200 grams of sugas
3 egg yolks
2 cans of cold table cream

1 tbsp of vanilla extract

1 tbs of milk
1 tbsp of cocoa powder
2 pacts of Maizena Cookie

1. With a eletric mixer blend the yolks, the butter and the sugar until you obtain a white pale cream.
2. In the meanwhile take all the cookies out of the bag and prepare the milk with the cocoa powder in a different bowl. Do not dip the cookies in the milk until you have the cream all set. 3. Mix the table cream( without all the liquid ) with the butter cream.
4. Now you can start dipping the cookies in the milk chocolate and start assembling your pie. You will need to use a baking dish.
5. Use the cookies to fill the bottom of the baking dish, then put the cream on top, then the cookies again followed by the cream. You will do this until no more cream its left. You can top this off with chocolate ganache and cumble cookies.

This cake its a chocahollic ( dont know how to write it ) dream. You can use any kind of chocolate cake and just use the Brigadeiro as a filling and to cover the cake. You can also use any kind of sprinkles....Believe me, this one its a crowd pleaser with anyone. As long as you do a good chocolate cake, the filling its simple and delicious.

Brigadeiro - Brazilian Treat

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbs butter
2 tbs cocoa powder (I prefer Nestle or Girardhelli)
chocolate sprinkles
small paper cups
Optional: vanilla extract, or orange extract, or almod extract.
Mix condensed milk, butter and cocoa powder in a saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. You will know it is ready when the bottom of the pan starts to show when you scrape it with the wooden spoon. Also you will notice the mixture should have become thicker. That is when it is ready. Don't let it become too thick though. Add the preferred extract now if you wish so. You will let it cool on the refrigerator. After that, greese the palm of your hand with just a little bit of butter and roll 1 teaspoon of the hardned brigadeiro into a tiny ball. Roll each ball in chocolate sprinkles and place it in a small paper cup. Fill a whole dish with it and have fun!
