Just came back from five AMAZING weeks’ holidays in Brazil and brought with me a box full of produces I miss the most and can’t easily find in Europe. That includes teas, spices, chocolates, and lollies.

I’m conscious that it would take me forever to eat all this sugar so I decided to share some of these treats with my friends and make a Pavê using some of the chocolate I brought with me.


Pavê is a no-bake Brazilian dessert traditionally made of layers of custard and sponge finger biscuits soaked in chocolate milk.

Today I made a variation of Pavê using BIS bombom, a rectangular shaped bombom with lots of layers of a crunchy wafer and slightly bitter chocolate.

Sweet cream, crunchy bitter pieces of bombom. It can’t get any better!

This recipe is very easy to make and you can replace BIS with any other crunchy bombom of your preference.
