A holiday recipe for little kids and for the grown-ups as well ;) This is a gourmet dough full of flavors!
This recipe is for the dough of coxinha, a chicken croquette that is found at every children's party in Brazil. Although it is typically stuffed with shredded chicken, you can use any of your favorite ingredients. It is a truly a unanimous recipe!

Sprinkle a work surface with flour and place the dough on it
Knead the dough until you can form a smooth and pliable ball with it
Wrap in cling film and rest at room temperature for 1h to soften. The Brazilian snack dough is ready to use
