A few things.

First off, is anyone else as insanely excited about the World Cup as me?  First off, I love it when all these countries get together and show their pride.  Secondly, how amazing is Brazil?  I’d love to go one day.  Until then, I’ll have to just eat brigadieros which are the easiest sweet in the world to make and from the country.

Secondly, the other day I decided that Bastien was going to start cooking with me.  First thing we did was make this somewhat weird cake called Burmese Semolina Cake from this month’s Bon Appetit.  It was very easy to make and he helped me pour the ingredients, crack the eggs and stir the mixture.  We both had fun.

Then we made risotto for dinner that night.  He helped me dump in some of the ingredients, and then I forgot how tedious making risotto on the stovetop was and stood over it pouring in stock.

Lately, I’ve been craving sweets and I thought this Brigadeiro recipe would be another perfect thing to make together.

Bastien eatingTurns out not so much.  He chose the sprinkles to roll the brigadieros in (white sugaring dust) and then proceeded to eat the mixture.  And that was that.  So, I made it on my own.  But having said that it was so easy I did it while simultaneously making dinner (my favourite Boeuf a la Catalane) and taking care of Bastien.  If you are craving something a little different, easy and sweet this is a great option.  Plus it’s only THREE ingredients which you probably have on hand.
