Author Notes: This is a recipe that we learned from our Brazilian friends. Hope you like it as much as we do! —Candyland Queens
Serves: about 20
tin of sweetened condensed milk
tablespoons of Nestle Quick (or any other chococlate powder
tablespoons of butter
- In a saucepan over medium heat mix the condensed milk, cocoa and butter. Cook, constantly stirring with a wooden spoon for about 10-12 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. Cover you hands wit butter and roll the mixture into small balls. Roll the ball over the chocolate sprinkles until completely covered. Enjoy!
- Variation: You can add to the mixture, while still warm small pieces of cookies (we like to use shortbread cookies) and serve it in a large bowl. This is called Brigadeirao, and it is an easy option as you skip all the work that making the small balls and covered them with chocolate sprinkles requires.
