Brigadeiros, Chocolate Truffles [Brazil]
These truffles are what dreams are made of. Seriously, these barely lasted an hour in my house.
Welcome to the party, Brigadeiros, you delicious little truffles of goodness.
Lemme tell you about these truffles. They are bite-sized chocolate treats with a caramel taste and consistency. Oh yea, these are like having the entire carnival in your mouth.
I have a confession: The first time I made these I turned them into something that resembled a tar pit. They were sticky, runny, and very, very, messy. Thank goodness the girls at my Bunco club didn’t mind and ate them up, almost eating the paper along with it. And yes, I play Bunco with my neighbors once a week. I may be the youngest, but that didn’t stop me from winning $10 last week with my mini bunco win!
Anyways, back to these truffles.
To make sure they have the perfect consistency, make sure you cook them at least ten minutes on low. I was afraid I was going to burn my chocolate so I took it off the heat way too early. Don’t make the same mistake I did!
One of the things I love about these truffles is that there are only 4 ingredients! Make sure you use condensed milk and not evaporated milk. They aren’t the same and your truffles will be no bueno!
Did you know that dulce de leche is made from sweetened condensed milk? Yep, that’s what gives these truffles that caramel flavor and gooey texture.
And why not add a little bit more South American cuisine to your day? Try my chimichurri sauce to serve atop of your steak, chicken, or even shrimp.
In medium saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter. Stir and bring to a boil. Let boil 30 seconds. Reduce to low and let simmer 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Once very thick, take off heat and transfer to a greased bowl. Place in fridge to cool, about 1 hour.
Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, pour the sprinkles into a dish. Use a small tablespoon and measure out the mixture and roll into balls in the palms of your hands. Coat with sprinkles and place on a plate or in individual candy wrappers. Serve.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
