Dearest Readers, do you know anyone who doesn’t like chocolate? I remember once I bought a chocolate mango cake for a friend’s birthday and was so excited about giving it to him. At midnight we sang happy birthday and gave him the cake. He politely accepted but then said “I’m sorry but I don’t eat chocolate, mango or cream, it’s ok I ll take it all out and just eat the sponge cake”
The lovely lady then told me that this is a traditional breakfast dish in Mexico and surprisingly the men wake up and make it ~ now I d like to have that tradition here in Australia ~
We then moved onto the Brazilian brigadeiros which is there version of chocolate truffles, we tried a variety of flavours – chocolate, coconut, strawberry and one with sprinkles. They have a very soft smooth texture and a familiar sweetness which I think comes from condense milk. I may or may had 3 in a row sooooooo addictive.
