If you've ever visited Brazil or known a Brazilian, chances are quite high that you've eaten Brigadeiro. They are a quintessential dessert or party snack. We even had them at our Brazilian backyard wedding celebration. The versions are endless, most often they are made with a lot of chocolate, they can also be nut forward, fruit-focused or white chocolate and coconut. Traditionally Brigadeiro is quite sweet, but this recipe substitutes sugar for honey. The flavors of Silvestre honey and pistachios pairs quite nicely.

Servings: 10-12 truffles
Cooking time: 1 hour
- 7 oz of condensed milk
- 2 tbsp of Silvestre honey
- 1 ½ tbsp of organic cacao powder
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- ¼ cup of chopped pistachios
- In a medium saucepan combine condensed milk, honey, cocoa powder, and coconut oil. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cook stirring occasionally until the mixture thickens and begins to pull away from sides of the pan, about 15 minutes. Cool down the mixture for about an hour and make a ball using an ice cream scoop or by hands.
