Brigadeiros are one of the most popular sweet treats in Brazil. They are incredibly easy to make with few ingredients yet the results are creamy, chocolaty and delicious.


Make It

Step 1

Combine sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for about 8-12 minutes or until mixture resembles thick pudding. Remove from heat. Add butter, vanilla extract and salt and mix thoroughly. Let cool for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of chocolate mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Pour sprinkles in a shallow dish. Grease hands with oil or cooking spray. Shape chocolate mixture into balls and then roll in sprinkles. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
