If I was going to make fresh salsa, then I figured I might as well make fresh homemade tortillas as well! They were SO much easier than I ever could have imagined and they were fantastic! I got the recipe from here. Trust me, so easy!
Then I found out it was my friend Libby's birthday. She has been so sweet to me ever since we got here. I would say at least once a week, she texts me to see if Nixon and I want to do something with her and her two little girls.
I knew I had to do something for her birthday! I knew she loved the Oreo truffles I did for the 4th of July, but I didn't have any Oreos on hand, so I decided to do a different style of truffle. A Brazilian truffle called Brigadeiro, which is similar to a bonbon. I've made them once before and I thought she might like them.

1 can (14 oz) Sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of butter
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine cocoa, butter and condensed milk. (It will be at a rolling boil). Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. When you turn the pan and it all moves together, stir another 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat. You can either keep it in the pan to cool off, or spray a plate with cooking spray and pour it out onto the plate (I feel like this cools it off a bit faster). Once you're able to handle it, spray your hand with cooking spray or rub butter (to keep it from sticking to you) and roll out to desired size. I made them about 1 inch in diameter and I was able to get about 26 out of a single recipe.
