Buttered Brazil Steeped In History

The history of buttered brazils is a bit of a mystery, it is believed they were first made in Scotland by John Buchanan & Bros. They started making sweets in 1869 but quite when the first buttered brazil was made is unclear.

We have been selling buttered brazils for the last 40 years and it truly is one of the great nostalgic British sweets. Whole Bolivian brazil nuts wrapped in a brittle and buttery toffee shell; making for the perfect combination of sweetness and crunch.

Our buttered brazils are made the old fashioned way, handmade made on open pans in small batches. Each one has its own unique charm; a treat for all the senses.
