Happy Easter!

In Brazil we don’t have the egg hunt tradition (well, we don’t search for real eggs…), but we do have the delicious chocolate egg tradition. This year my loved one demanded his Easter gift in egg shape and I could not refuse.

Here is the result! Drizzle some white chocolate to make it fancy… remember to temper the chocolate to make it shiny, fill them with some goodies and tchanĂŁ: our easter treat! In the tray: pistachio brigadeiro, lemoncello (almonds covered in lemony candy) and coconut little kisses (as we call coconut brigadeiros back home).

 

Time for Pudim!

I present you the Brazilian favorite of all times, the pudim of condensed milk (or some kind of Condensed Milk Flan)!

This dessert is one of my particular favorites. I don’t know if is the sweetness of the condensed milk or the caramel the flows all over it, but it is a sensational treat able to calm the most reluctant beasts. 🙂

The best part is the fact that despite of being a sweet treat, it is light, creamy and it shall be served cold(!), making them the perfect to finish to that amazing barbecue on the porch.

It is possible to add other flavors (fruit or chocolate) to it as well without the risk of ruining it, but the simple and traditional way is definitely my Achilles heel.
