You know how specific foods and smells can transport you to a certain time and place in your life?  Believe it or not, these small Brazilian chocolate truffles take me directly back to the first grade.  Our nanny from Brazil, Ana, used to make these and bring them in to my first grade class.  All of my fellow first graders would seriously lose. their. minds.

I always had the impression that these were some sort of elaborate and exotic creation, known only to the Brazilians.  Imagine my surprise when I saw a recipe for Brigadeiros pop up on America’s Test Kitchen new Feed and learned that there were only THREE ingredients!  Three!  And all readily accessible at my local grocery store.  I didn’t even have to go to the fancy grocery store….

It’s silly for me to re-type the recipe for you when America’s Test Kitchen has explained it thoroughly and couldn’t possibly more succinct.   You can find it here.

Bet you can even figure it out just based on pictures, no captions included!

Stay Back you Scoundrel! They aren't done yet!

The jig is up, Ana!  I know your secret recipe and have shared it with everyone!

    These look amazing. They remind me of these sweet a brazilian woman I know made when I was younger. They were delicious.
