How To Make Brigadeiro

Brigadeiro is a decadent Brazilian dessert made by heating three key ingredients together – unsalted butter, cocoa powder, and condensed milk, which are then rolled into a small ball, similar in shape to a truffle.

First made in the 1940s, when fruit and sweets were in short supply, brigadeiro was born out of creativity with just a few ingredients.

Brigadeiros are very sweet, with a rich chocolate flavor, and are usually topped with chocolate sprinkles. Today, they are marketed as a gourmet delicacy, made in many different flavors such as almond, mint, hazelnut, coffee, and coconut.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon butter

14 oz sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup chocolate sprinkle, as needed

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE BRIGADEIRO

In a pot over low heat, melt the butter, condensed milk, and cocoa powder, stirring continuously until you can see the bottom of the pot for 2-3 seconds when dragging a spatula through.

Pour onto a greased plate, then chill for 1 hour.

Shape and roll the chilled mixture into balls.

Roll the balls in chocolate sprinkles.
