Stefin’s back from International Night at her daughter’s middle school, and reports the stand-out treat, on a night filled with delicious Israeli jelly donuts, Dutch pancakes, British gin and tonics, New Zealand Marmite and yes, American Coors Light, was the beloved national candy of Brazil: brigadeiros!
