Sweet taste of Brazil

A Hatfield brigadeiro maker puts Sharon in a passion
This is the month of LOVE, passion and all things tempting and tasty. The origin of Valentine’s Day is attributed to various early Christian martyrs named Valentine, but it’s linkage to romantic love seems to appear first in Chaucer’s 1382 poem Parlement of Foules. In the following centuries, Valentine’s Day blossomed as an increasingly popular late winter to early spring holiday. Songs, poetry and roses celebrated hearts brimming with passion.
Today we often spoil our loved ones with sweet treats and I’ve found a scrumptious treat with its origins in Brazil that is now being made in Hatfield.
Brigadeiro is a delicious, luscious, handcrafted Brazilian treat. Quality ingredients are slow-cooked and then handrolled into bite-sized balls of chocolate indulgence, nutty delights and fruity sensations.
The owner of Emmy’s Brigadeiro is Emmy Rocha and it’s her mission to introduce this sweet little delicacy to everyone she meets. If you love chocolate and enjoy sweet moments, then you will fall for these Brazilian treats! It’s much more than a simple sweet. It’s fabulous with coffee, is an excellent choice for a gift and an unforgettable treat for a special celebration. Each one is handmade to order, so every step of the way is filled with lots of love. She uses only pure Belgian chocolate and high quality nuts. Brigadeiros are suitable for vegetarians and are egg- and gluten-free.
So if you would like to surprise your loved one with an unusual sweet treat this Valentine’s (or for that matter guests at a wedding, corporate event or any other special occasion), don’t hesitate to contact Emmy at emmysbrigadeiro.com
