Brazil candy

Increasing your children’s global awareness means making tiny decisions to infuse different cultural opportunities into everyday life. The next time you are planning a party, internationalize the kids’ experience by making some Brazilian party candies. They are fast, easy, delicious, they require only a couple of ingredients, and your kids can help you make them (that’s the best part!). These caramel-type brigadeiros and beijinhos are typical for kids birthday parties all over Brazil. Remember to show your kids where Brazil is on the map, and remind them that Brazilians speak Portuguese (not Spanish:). Practice saying the names of the candies: bree-gah-DAY-ee-rows (rolling your r’s slightly) and bay-ee-ZHEE-nyos.  READ MORE
