C is for Chess Pie

Filed under tastes better than it looks (my crust shrank!), this Chess Pie is sweet but not overly so. Really good with a little bit of fresh whipped cream or homemade ice cream.

B is for Brigadeiro

Want to impress your family and friends with a fancy looking dessert that takes barely any effort at all? Then you should totally make brigadeiro.

This Brazilian bonbon can be customized a million different ways. They’d be a great gift for the chocolate lovers in your life. Plus they’re small enough to sneak a bite in the corner of the kitchen without any of your kids noticing.
