Step-By-Step Brigadeiro Recipe

Step 1: Melt the Butter

Start by melting your butter in a medium-sized saucepan over low heat.

Step 2: Add the Sweetened Condensed Milk and Cocoa Powder

Mix your sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder into the saucepan, stirring continuously.

Step 3: Cook Until Thickened

Keep cooking this mixture over low heat, making sure to stir it constantly until it thickens. You’ll know it’s ready when it starts pulling away from the sides and bottom of the pan as you stir.

Step 4: Let it cool

Once it has reached the right consistency, turn off the heat and let it cool for a bit.

Step 5: Roll and Sprinkle

Once cool enough to handle, scoop little spoonfuls and roll them into small balls. Then, roll these in your chocolate sprinkles. Traditionally, Brigadeiros are served in small paper cups, but they’re just as delicious without.
