Some popular Brazilian sweets and desserts

1. Brigadeiro


Similar to a truffle, this ultra-sweet two-biter is made from sweetened condensed milk heated with cocoa powder to form a paste, then mixed with cold butter and rolled into small balls—which are then rolled in toppings like brown sugar, sprinkles, coconut shavings, or almonds. They're often eaten at birthday parties.

3. Bolo De Rolo

rollcake (Brazilian)

This dough is wrapped with a layer of melted guava, giving the appearance of a swiss roll. However, layers of dough and guava are much thinner than the ones used in the swiss roll, and the taste is completely different.

5. Canjica De Milho


Every year in June during the annual corn harvest, Brazilians chow down on canjica de milho, a sweet, thick corn gruel dessert made with hominy (whole white maize kernels), sugar, milk, and often cinnamon, sweetened condensed milk, and peanuts. It's a dish mostly found in southern Brazil, which originated within African slave and Afro-Brazilian communities during the late 17th century. The hominy soaks overnight before simmering with the milk until it becomes very thick and creamy, with a texture reminiscent of rice pudding.
