Author Notes: We have learned this recipe from our Brazilian friend Karina. It is called "Bem Casado," which means "Well Married" in English so very much in tune with Valentine's Day and related themes :). This recipe is also known as the Brazilian fudge.

This recipe is great for anyone who does not like to drink milk, since most of it is condensed milk. Our youngest in the family, Mariana, who happens not to like to drink her milk in the morning, really likes these for breakfast...We are giving "Bem Casados" away to our Valentines this week.

Serves 10

  • 2 cans (28 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • white granulate sugar to cover
  1. For the first batch: In a saucepan over medium heat mix one can of condensed milk, 3 tablespoons of cocoa and one tablespoon of butter. Cook, constantly stirring with a wooden spoon for about 15-17 minutes or until thickened. You will know that is ready when you are able to see the bottom of the pan when tilting it. Remove from the heat and carefully transfer the hot mixture to a separate greased bowl to cool. Let it cool off.
  2. For the second batch: In a saucepan over medium heat mix one can of condensed milk and one tablespoon of butter. Cook, constantly stirring with a wooden spoon for about 15-17 minutes or until thickened. You will know that is ready when you are able to see the bottom of the pan when tilting it. Remove from the heat and carefully transfer the hot mixture to a separate greased bowl to cool. Let it cool off.
  3. Putting everything together: Cover your hands with butter and take a small portion from the mixture with chocolate and another from the mixture without chocolate. Roll both small portions into small balls. Roll the balls over white granulate sugar until completely covered. You can decorate them with sugar pearls...
  4. "Well Married" (Bem Casados) look awesome! And taste even better.

This recipe is great! Just one comment, this recipe is for brigadeiros, not bem casados.
There's this bakery in NYC that bakes both brigadeiros and bem casados. Check their blog to find the out the difference between them!!
