    15 min

    This version of brigadeiro is made with cocoa powder and is much less sweet than the original version.

    Serves: 15 

    • 1 (397g) tin sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • chocolate sprinkles for rolling

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a heavy saucepan, add condensed milk, butter and cocoa powder and cook over medium heat. (Reduce the heat if you use a thin-bottomed saucepan.)
    2. Stir constantly until you reach the right consistency - one minute after it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and the bottom.
    3. Pour the mixture into a greased plate, let cool and, with buttered hands, shape into small balls and roll in chocolate sprinkles.

    Very easy and quick to make, since I had no chocolate “hundreds and thousands” I use cocoa powder as is frequently found in shops, they are still cooling but the mixture is delicious and not too sweet as suggested.  -  31 Mar 2018
