This week I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of Sweet Bob on the Brouwersgracht, Amsterdam. I have frequently walked past this place, so I decided to find out a bit more about the 'Brazilian Brigadeiro'. I had absolutely no idea what a Brigadeiro was up until this week.
A 'Brigadeiro' is a Brazilian delicacy first created in the 1940's and is common to see at celebrations and parties. The sweet is made from condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter with various flavourings and toppings. Currently there are 30 different flavours at Sweet Bob's with about 10-12 of these flavours available each day. Each Brigadeiro is hand made with love in the store on a daily basis by the Brazilian staff.
They are a great addition to a dinner party or birthday celebration, and I am told very popular as wedding day treat! I was lucky enough to sample a few flavours and I have the say the 'Bob Brownie' and 'Dulce de Leche' were amazing! So, fingers crossed you are a friend of mine and maybe you will get a little treat from myself and Sweet Bob some time! And if not, head on down to the Brouwersgracht and check them out for yourself. They can also be ordered through Foodora if you're feeling lazy!
