July’s Flavor of the Month Brigadeiro is a favorite of Americans and Brazilians alike...
Peanuts and Dark Chocolate!
In Brazil, we have a delicious candy called “cajuzinho” that perfectly mixes the sweetness of chocolate with the saltiness of roasted peanuts. Everyone LOVES them!
Interestingly, the “cajuzinho” candy was originally invented in the Northeast of Brazil and was made with cashew nuts. However as the candy became popular in the South, local confectioners started to replace the cashews with peanuts, which were more widely available!
So this month I wanted to create that same “cajuzinho” magic in a brigadeiro. If you love peanuts with chocolate, I know you’ll love the combination of peanut butter and dark chocolate, which is so perfectly balanced in this Brigadeiro!
