Dark Chocolate Brigadeiros


  • 1-13oz can condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp dark black cocoa powder, sifted
  • 25 g butter + extra, salted
  • Sprinkles to decorate

YIELD: 10-12 brigadeiros


Combine the condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter in a heavy bottom saucepan.

Set the pan over a low heat and stir with a silicone spatula until it thickens, 10 and 15 minutes.

Butter a large plate and pour the mixture on it to cool at room temperature.

Once it is cool and firm enough to handle, shape out balls, then roll in sprinkles.

Chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
