Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine condensed milk, cocoa, and 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until brigadeiro mixture thickens and pulls away from the bottom and sides when the pan is tilted, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and let brigadeiro mixture cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.

  • Scoop teaspoonfuls of the brigadeiro mixture and roll into balls with greased hands.

  • Spread chocolate sprinkles on a shallow plate. Dip and roll brigadeiros in sprinkles.

Cook's Note:

You can speed up the cooling process in the refrigerator.
