Rakshabandhan is a festival in which the bond between a brother and sister is traditionally celebrated. Sisters tie a thread (rakhi) around their brother’s wrist to protect them from any “evil.” In addition to tying a rakhi, the sister will feed her brother his favorite sweet or candy. Barfi, one of our favorite sweets, is a type of fudge made of milk and sugar. We’re customizing the barfi to match our brothers’ favorite sports teams for this Rakshabandhan! As traditions evolve, we’re having sisters tie rakhis and feed sweets to their sisters too! Make these barfi to celebrate sibling love with us!
