Oi! I'm Jen and my husband, Jesse, and I are the founders of Klado - House of Brigadeiros. 

Never had a Brigadeiro? Well, you're not alone. Neither did Jesse until he met me.

Having grown up in Brazil, Brigadeiros were an integral part of my life. At every celebration, Brigadeiros were front and center at the dessert table. As a child, I would patiently (who am I kidding, impatiently) wait until Happy Birthday was sung, just so I can finally eat Brigadeiros by the handful.

After moving back to America, my mother took on the tradition of making Brigadeiros for every one of my birthdays. I hated having to wait all year to eat Brigadeiros, so eventually, my mother passed on the baton and taught me how to make them. I never looked back.

Fast forward several years later, I met Jesse. In an attempt to impress him I made my signature dessert, Brigadeiros. The sweet and indulgent aroma filled the room. Jesse couldn't wait for the batter to cool, so he grabbed a spoon, and dug in. He was hooked! Now, the issue was how could we make Brigadeiros better, not only in flavor, but healthier.

After much trial and error, we developed the perfect recipes. We became obsessed with creating new, bold and never before seen Brigadeiro flavors. We wanted to introduce a new genre of desserts in America and share our creations with the world. That's why we created Klado - House of Brigadeiros.

From local events in the New York City area to figuring out how to ship our Brigadeiros cross country. We've made it our mission to make the best Brigadeiro possible free of gluten, nuts and best of all, under 100ish calories. Now both you and Jesse can eat an entire batch guilt-free.
