We caramelized the baru nut and covered it with our delicious 42% cocoa milk chocolate. Impossible to eat just one!
The Baru Nut is the fruit of the Baruzeiro, a tree native to the Cerrado located in the Central Plateau of Brazil. It is dense and resembles a softer peanut.
We buy the baru nut used in this recipe from cooperatives and small producers.
