Not quite a bonbon, not quite a truffle, a brigadeiro is a soft, chewy Brazilian sweet made of condensed milk, cocoa and butter. BonBon Brasil, a new D.C.-based company, is bringing the decadent treat to the District.
Founders, sisters and Bethesda natives Teresa and Valeria Boucas officially launched their business last year after demand from friends caused them to ramp up production.
“Making brigadeiros brings back so many memories for us and we absolutely love sharing our culture with others,” Teresa says in an email about her family’s Brazilian heritage. BonBon Brasil delivers throughout the D.C. area, and you can place an order on its site.
