Mama Sweets, LLC is a startup company based in Provo, Utah. We make a specialty Brazilian “truffle”called Brigaderios.
We wanted to bring a brand new concept for Brigadeiros to the US. Traditionally, in Brazil, Brigadeiros are served at any gatherings or special occasions and they are made to order or they can also be found at specialty bakeries. Instead of that format, we wanted to make it easier and available instantly at groceries stores, markets and specialty stores as a grab and go treat, eliminating the need for special orders. With that in mind, we have been able to create a recipe and packaging that can keep the Brigadeiros frozen or refrigerated for an easy and convenient way to store and enjoy them at any time.
Our company is a two woman show; Andrea Cook and Liz Donaldson are co-owners and co-founders of Mama Sweets. We do everything from cooking, hand rolling each Brigadeiro, packaging, labeling, distributing, social media and marketing, sales, events and demonstrations. We love what we do and have a lot of fun together while doing it.

Growing up in Brazil, I could never imagine a birthday party without Brigadeiros. It is something that every kid and even adults look forward to in a typical birthday party or major event. Now, after being in the U.S. for over 20 years, it is something I definitely miss.
At a special family occasion, I made these to serve and my friend and entrepreneur found the brigadeiros irresistible. It was love at first bite! Immediately, she thought we needed to share this instant passion for Brigadeiros with everyone, and that’s how Mama Sweets was born.
We have been selling Brigadeiros since March, 2018 and we have had great success where people have become instant fans as we demonstrate and introduce these delectable treats.
