It cannot be denied that Festa Junina is one of the most loved commemorative dates by Brazilians! Especially because it means a lot of delicious food that is usually made only at this time of year.
And if you love the delicacies found in fairs, fairs and family celebrations so much, how about preparing some of these June sweets at home? Most of them are super easy to make and they are all delicious!
It is easy to find industrial paçoquinhas, those sold in the market. However, the homemade version of the candy can be even more delicious! And the best: the preparation is super simple, as well as the ingredients.
SWEET RICE COOKIE
Rice pudding is a classic of the June festivities, but few dare the presentation! Here, we transform this delight into a wonderful muffin, accompanied with lots of sugar and cinnamon.
Pé de moleque is almost a synonym for festa junina! Crunchy and perfect for those who love sweets with peanuts, it is one of the classics that can never be left out of celebrations. If you prefer, we also have a version made with chocolate – as delicious as the traditional one.

CONDENSED MILK DESSERT WITH CASHEWS
Another option for people who don’t give up on peanuts! Cajuzinho is one of the best party sweets, the ones that everyone loves and that soon ends ❤️
Where there is a kid’s foot, there must also be a girl’s foot! The difference of this sweetie is the creamy brigadeiro that involves all the caramelized peanuts. Therefore, it is softer and, as a bonus, it tastes like chocolate.
If paçoquinha is already a sweet treat for every Brazilian, how can you not fall in love with its creamy version? Every dessert with condensed milk is always delicious, and the result would be no different with paçoca!
Warm sweets are also very present in quermesses, and corn porridge is one of them. Finally, don’t forget to add cinnamon powder, because it makes all the difference ?
Why not give your loved one a homemade love apple? Cooking for those we like is always a symbol of affection, and nothing better than using this gesture to prepare the apple of love. It is very easy to do and it is delicious!
Yes, another delight with paçoca! Here, we separate two types of brigadeiro: one, more classic and with a lot of paçoca; another, stuffed and with cocoa powder and more peanuts. Just choose the one you prefer and make it at home.
