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.


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.
