Easy Brigadeiro Recipes: This Chocolate Brigadeiro Recipe Is Heaven in Your Mouth

A brigadeiro is a bite-size Brazilian ball of chocolate goodness that’s served at almost all celebrations in Brazil. With only four ingredients, this truffle-like treat is super simple to make.

Cuisine: Brazilian 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


Here’s how to make them:

  1. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan.
  2. Over medium-low heat, cook until the mixture thickens and is firm enough to stay together and not spread when stirred.
  3. Pour the batter onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet and allow it to cool to room temperature (or pop it into the fridge for a few minutes).
  4. Butter your hands and roll it into 1 1/2-inch balls.
  5. Roll the balls in the chocolate sprinkles.

Yum! Store in an airtight container.
