Brigadeiros – 300th Post :)



   Brigadeiros, a popular Brazilian dessert that’s very easy to make. The recipe calls for only 3 ingredients.. In this recipe, cndensed milk, cocoa powder and butter are heated together, preferably in a non-stick pan to obtain a smooth texture which is then made into small balls and then rolled in either powdered sugar, chocolate shavings, fresh or dessicated coconut, sprinkles or whatever suits your fancy. Hope you all will enjoy this delicious treat..

Ingredients (Makes around 15 – 20)

Sweetened condensed milk – 1 can (14 oz)

Butter, unsalted – 2 tbsp

Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp




Combine all the three ingredients in a medium-heavy pan. Stir continuously over low-medium heat until the mixture comes together and you can see the bottom of the pan when you scrape it with a spoon, around 7 – 10 minutes. Stir for 2 more minutes over low heat. To test whether done, take a small portion of the mixture, cool it down a bit, grease your palm with butter and try to roll it. If you are able to roll it, it is done. Switch off. Add 2 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips for an extra chocolaty taste (optional) and stir until it melts completely. Transfer the mixture into a plate. Let rest for a few minutes till warm. Grease your palm with butter and shape the mixture into small balls. Roll them in chocolate sprinkles / coconut / cocoa powder / sugar etc. You can serve them in mini cupcake liners. It can be stored in room temperature for a few days or in the refrigerator for at least 1 – 2 weeks. Enjoy!
