This is a lovely simple recipe for Docinhos de Abobora, the famous Brazilian candy treats. I have not tried this recipe yet, so cooking time is approximate, I'm posting for ZWT 4.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large, heavy bottomed pan. Cook on a medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is thick, or until it reaches the medium-ball stage (238 to 245 degrees F.).
  2. Turn onto a buttered platter to cool.
  3. Shape into small balls (you may need to grease your hands lightly with a little butter) and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
  4. Place in paper petit fours / bonbon cases.
