Ingredients

Traditional Brigadeiros: 
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 ounce dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Melted butter or butter spray, for greasing hands
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sprinkles
Pink Brigadeiros:
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more for greasing hands
  • 1 tablespoon cherry gelatin
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Melted butter or butter spray, for greasing hands
  • 1/4 cup crystallized sugar

Directions

For the traditional brigadeiros: Combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, cocoa powder and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir vigorously until you see heavy bubbles in the mixture, about 10 minutes. Transfer the batch to a porcelain plate and refrigerate for 1 hour or until it is completely cool. When cooled, butter your hands with the butter spray and using a tablespoon grab small amounts of the mixture and mold it into 1-inch balls. Roll each one in sprinkles and place in mini paper candy cups. Keep refrigerated for 30 minutes before serving.
