Why does salted caramel Brigadeiros taste so good?
I believe that the main reason that salted caramel Brigadeiros tastes so good is because has its flavor enhanced by the salt. Also, don’t forget that there is a serious caramelization process going on, which releases umami flavors on the recipe and is also something sought after,.
The salt help you to produce more saliva and to “feel” the flavor better, and it also contrasts with the sugar, making it even sweeter.
I’m not sure if there are scientific studies about it, but those are the reasons I find that makes salted caramel Brigadeiros taste so good.
