Tiny Food: Red Velvet Bailey’s Brigadeiros!

Red Velvet Bailey's Brigadeiros

Are you celebrating the National Dessert day today?  

I woke up thinking about my favourite dessert that my mom used to do while I was growing up, trufas! better known as brigadeiros! These tiny precious bites tastes like a cupcake, and of course, what dreams are made of (for real, real).

You’ve seen our traditional chocolate brigadeiros here on the blog before, and this time, I wanted to try something different: Red Velvet Bailey’s edition! 

The the secret ingredient to achieve the yummiest pink brigadeiros? Adding a tiny bit of Bailey’s red velvet to the mix. 

Easy Red Velvet Brigadeiros

Here I am, staring at these beauties, telling them how much I love them! 

I used pink sprinkles to coat them this time, pairing it with the red velvet mix, and believe it or not, this dessert is SO easy you’ll only need 5 ingredients. This recipe is one of Nico’s favourite and 100% safe if you have a kid with nuts allergy at home, like us.
