So the man of the house recently went on a business trip to Brazil (what can I say.. World Cup year means business) and brought me back a DELICIOUS box of Brazilian sweets called "Brigadeiros". They are creamy truffle-like cute melt-in-your-mouth kind of things so I just HAD to learn how to do them.. it couldn't be that hard (??)
It wasn't!! This is the most simple basic fast (and really good looking) dessert that you will ever make! and it is a crowd pleaser! :)
So if you have 20-30 min in your hands, this is a dessert to impress!
- 1 can Condensed milk
- 2-4 Tbsp Cocoa powder
- 60 gr Butter
Put 30 gr in a pan and melt over medium-low heat. Add-in the cocoa powder (to taste). Add entire can of condensed milk, stirr in until well combined.
Keep stirring the mix for about 20-40 min (to prevent it from burning). It will be ready when you divide it in half it stays parted for a few seconds; or when you scoop some it holds for an instant to d spoon beforefalling down.
Let cool down for 10-30 min (until it is firm enough to roll balls; it is easier to handle when it is not entirely cold).
Colling down. Ready to roll Brigadeiros.
Butter your hands, then roll the mix into 1 teaspoon balls, and directly roll them into sprinkles. Set on little paper holders & refridgerate for15-20 min so the sprinkles and the whole thing really sets.
You can keep in the fridge for a couple of days, and then take out 20 min prior to being eaten (or taken to your friends' house :) ).
