Brigadeiro - Brazilian Chocolate Truffles

These sweet treats are named for a Brazilian Air Force commander who was popular during the 1940′s, and they are a common Brazilian bon bon which is served at any type of celebration. They can be rolled in various types of awesome things, too: granulated sugar, nuts, coconut, chocolate sprinkles.

, these are ridiculously easy to make, by the way. All you need is a little whisking power, a few hours to chill the mixture, and you’ve got it made. If you need a quick fix for some sort of holiday get-together, these are it. They are really good, too.


1 Condensed milk can
3 to 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp butter


Pour ingredients in pan and put them to boil mixing all the time with a wooden spoon or spatula. Once it appears that it started to unglue from the pan, and it is thick, turn off and spread over a buttered or sprayed bowl. Wait till it cools and shape balls of 2.5cm diameter with buttered/oily hands, throw in chocolate sprinkles and rolls them over it. Place balls in paper liner. Keep them stored in a cool place.

I found below picture in a Brasilian website, and just added it to show you an idea how some also put the brigadeiro on the table, I LOVE IT! don't you?
