About this recipe: This delicious three-ingredient chocolate fudge sweet is a much loved Brazilian treat that's lightning fast - just 10 minutes to cook, with no sugar thermometer, then let it rest till cool to handle.
Roll the balls in chocolate sugar strands for a traditional Brazilian touch!
There was no mention of rubbing butter on your hands while making a brigadeiro ball. Without butter, the chocolate strands won't adhere to the ball. Also this recipe fails to explain the right consistency of the chocolate before taking it off the heat. I usually like recipes from this website but this one is not one of them. My brigadeiros although nice were disappointing. I am not using cocoa powder any more, for sure and will be using butter to roll those balls. - 31 Aug 2013
I didnt use cocoa powder i used 150g plain chocolate because it didnt thicken to the right consistency. I cooled it in the fridge for an hour and then rolled them out with greased hands. Worked so much better and tasted much bettet - 22 Oct 2016
