Continuing our 12 days of desserts series, today we are sharing Olho de Sogra (Mother in Law’s Eye). Not sure why the name, 🙂 but it’s basically a coconut truffle, the white brigadier base with coconut and dry plum as the “shell”. The taste is completely unique, you need to try it!
2 cans of condensed milk
4 tbsp of butter (softened)
2 tbsp of shredded coconut
1 package of dried plums
Place condensed milk and butter in a pot in low heat and vigorously stir until it will not stick to the pot anymore, boiling.
Mix vigorously until it is not runny, but thicker, about 20min. When it’s fully cooked, add coconut and mix it.
Spread butter on a dish and place mixture to cool it off on it
Take a tsp of the mixture and place it inside the plum. Some Packages come pre-sliced in the center, if not, cut a 1 inch slice in the center of the dried plum.
So easy, you won’t believe it!
When I’m in a hurry and want to have it done quickly for our guests, I use the beijinho brand can found in Brazilian supermarkets. The content of the can is placed inside the plum, instead of the homemade version.
Here is the final result! I made them last Christmas and they were a hit!
Hope you’ve enjoyed our third dessert! Can’t wait to share another one with you tomorrow!
