|Note: this pan was originally completely full to the brim with candies, notice how much has already been consumed.|
We made beijinhos which translates to meaning "little kisses" (in Brasilian Portuguese). Beijinhos are made of sweetened condensed milk (of course), Nescau chocolate, and a little bit of butter. Brigadieros which translates to the highest rank in the Brasilian Air Force, are made of sweetened condensed milk, coconut, and a little bit of butter. Put both mixtures over medium high heat and stir constantly till it gets to the proper consistency. Immediately pour it out on a plate. When it is completely cooled down, you will be able to form them into ball-like shapes with your hands and roll them in coconut, Nescau chocolate or white chocolate crumbles. Next step...Enjoy!
|Bruno, was our candy-making teacher for the night (he didn't know he was going to be in the picture). haha|
Friday, while running around getting things ready for the secret-garden-birthday-party I bought a succulent. Farrems made a really cool terrarium with the succulent on the left, for a gift to give to Kimi. I revamped my previous terrarium with the succulent on the right. Hopefully I can keep this one alive.
Hoping I can make the tartines tonight and tomorrow I should have my ceramic piece to share with you. Well I am going to go get somethings done. Bye loves!
