Sluttishly Sweet: Lemon & Coconut Brigadeiros

I know we've only just recovered from the excesses of Christmas, but I couldn't resist trying out these fudgy Brazilian sweets. Brigadeiros are named after Brigadier Gomes, who apparently was little and round, hence the shape.

Traditionally they're chocolate flavoured, but in the name of "detox" I've made these with lemon instead.

Lemon & Coconut Brigadeiros

You'll need:
  • 240ml condensed milk
  • 120ml coconut milk
  • 25g butter
  • 1tbsp golden syrup
  • Zest and juice of a lemon
  • Dessicated coconut to decorate
Make it!
  • Put the condensed milk, coconut milk, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and bring to the boil. The mixture bubbles up a lot, so make sure the saucepan is a big one.
  • Boil for around 8 minutes, whisking like you've never whisked before, until the consistency is thick and fudgy. Don't leave it alone for a second or it'll burn onto the bottom of the saucepan.
  • Pour into a cold bowl (carefully, or it will burn you), then stir in the lemon zest and juice.
  • Leave to cool and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  • Take teaspoons of the cold mixture and roll into balls between your palms, before rolling in dessicated coconut.
