– Hey dudes, I’m Hilah and
today on Hilah Cooking, I’ve got my friend Tuany back, and this time, she’s gonna cook. – I know, finally something
I can really make. – And it’s brigadeiro. – Yes, brigadeiro. Yes if I couldn’t
make brigadeiro, they would take my citizenship. If you can’t make brigadeiro,
you’re not Brazilian. – That’s probably true.
– Mhmmm. (upbeat music) So we have it all over
Brazil and we have it more on birthdays but
anytime you want and it’s a good
medicine for like PMS. There’s different
ways to eat it. And we’re making like
the ones for the parties, the birthday parties.
– Okay. – Because that’s like
the prettiest one. And we have this complicated
recipe right here in front. – With three ingredients.
(laughing) – Three ingredients and that’s it. – Sweetened condensed
milk, chocolate powder, which is like chocolate
milk powder. – Yes–
– In America. – Yeah, it’s a little bit
different than what I’ve seen. – The cocoa powder? – Yeah, it’s not cocoa powder,
it’s chocolate milk powder so you can make
like chocolate milk or brigadeiro in this case. It’s a little bit more sugar. – A little bit of margarine. – Mhmmm, margarine or butter,
but I prefer margarine. So you’re gonna put all
the ingredients together, put on medium high, and
just stir for as long as you get the right
texture I guess and I’ll show you one
little trick to know when you get the right,
and I don’t know the word for this but we call
ponto, ponto do brigadeiro, which is when it’s
coming out of the pan and then you see it. – Okay, let’s find
out what that is. – Okay. (laughing) (soft jazzy music) And then just mix a little
bit before you turn off because then it will
be also smoother. Okay I think that’s enough. That’s medium. – [Hilah] Yeah.
– [Tuany] Okay. So first ten minutes
won’t happen. So it’s gonna get
a little bit darker, kind of feel a
little bit thicker. – [Hilah] Is this like
the first thing that Brazilian kids
learn how to make? – [Tuany] Oh, I think so yeah. – [Hilah] And then you
were just like, that’s it, that’s all I need to know. (laughing) – There is one little
trick that you let, like, get a little bit bubbles. Yeah, when it’s simmering and then you lower the temperature. So it’s starting to
get a little bit thick. – [Hilah] So you’re just
trying to keep it from burning, though, just turn the
heat up or down. – Yes. So this would be
the good, the good one so you can just put
in a plate and eat with a spoon with your friends. – [Hilah] Ah ha. (laughing) – Yes, that’s how we did it. Okay, you see the– – [Hilah] Oh yeah, oh
wow that happened fast. Oh and then it
pours out like that. So the longer you
cook it, the harder– – Yeah, the harder it gets. So you’re gonna know it’s
ready when it comes off the pan and that’s “ponto do Brigadero” “para enrolar” Which is to roll. Yep, we’re good. – Alright, so I’m gonna
smear margarine out. – [Tuany] Mhmmm. And some Brazilians might
be what are you doing because we just put in
a plate but it just, the stone is, like, it’s better– – It cools it faster. – It cools it faster and also
it doesn’t get too much water so for humidity, it’s better. Whoops! And now it’s just the question
of who is gonna lick this? Me or you? (laughing) – I think she’s serious. – Of course, of course I am. Okay. – So we just let it
cool and leave it alone? – Yeah. – Okay, what do I do with this? (laughing) – We’re gonna use it to– – To roll the balls?
Yeah. Okay, so it’s cooled, it
was like five minutes, we’re just waiting for
it to not burn us. – Yeah, when we’re
rolling the little balls. But if you’re like, if you
do a little bit runnier than this, because it’s a
little bit, it’s thicker so– – [Hilah] This is pretty
firm and sticky like caramel. – So you can really roll it and if you leave a little before
the coming out of the pan, you can do just with your
spoon like with your friends or you can put it like in little cups and eat it with a spoon as well. And also, we instead
of frosting our cakes, we put brigadeiro recipe
and just pour over it and that runs a little bit. – It’s really good. – Yeah, it’s really good. – Yeah, I’ve also had that.
– Yeah. And then we just get a little
bit butter on your hands. Oh, there’s your spoon. – Okay. – So usually one recipe of
that give 30 to 35 brigadeiroes with, like if you put
after the candy and if you put in
this little cups but the American
ones are a little bigger so we’re gonna make
bigger brigadeiroes so it won’t be 30 to 35
so it should be like 15. – Okay.
– Okay? And you just get one and try to put the same
amount every time and then we see if
it fits there well. So, and you have
two kinds of sprinkles. And the black one’s gonna be
more typical brigadeiroes. And it’s done. – I wanna do a rainbow one. ‘Cause look, rainbows mean love. Bloop! (laughing) – So you just make a little
bigger, so it’s right there. – Oh, I should make it bigger. – Yeah, I mean that would be
perfect for our size but… – Okay. – They started doing
this in 1946 or 1950 or something like that and
it was, it’s named brigadeiro for, you know like when
you are from the military and you have all these classes
or titles that you can have? One of the titles
is called brigadeiro, so he’s in charge
of the brigada. – The brigade? – The brigade, brigada,
I said it in Portuguese. So and he was a
candidate to be president after Getulio Vargas,
a little bit geeky time, (laughing) so after Getulio Vargas and then he was
candidate to be president and they made this to sell and
get money for his campaign. – Oh they had a bake sale? – Yeah, it was kind of like that and then everyone would just go and say oh let’s get
brigadeiro’s sweets, treats and everything and they just became
brigadeiro after him. – How cool! – He was Brigadeiro
Eduardo Gomes I think. – He was the original brigadeiro. – He was the original brigadeiro. And, but he didn’t win so, I mean. – But he brought us candy.
– [Tuany] Yes, yeah! – [Hilah] He did kind of win.
– I mean– – In the history books.
– [Tuany] In life. – [Hilah] Yeah.
– Yeah in life he won. – Well if you like this
recipe, be sure to check out the pao de queijo, the
Brazilian cheese bread, and the coxinha that
we did together. – Mhmmm, we did together. – (laughing) I did it. Don’t forget to subscribe and
I will see you all next week with some more videos. Bye. – Bye! – Oh, we forgot to eat it. – Duh, okay I’ll eat the original one. – I’ll eat the rainbow sprinkles. Cheers.
– [Tuany] Cheers! – It’s like a chocolate caramel. – Mhmmm. Like soft, that’s how I like them. – Mmm, hope you try it. Bye bye!
– [Tuany] Bye bye! (upbeat music)
