• 1 (14oz) can sweet condensed milk
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
  • 2 Tbsp butter, plus more for rolling balls
  • A pinch of salt
  • Chocolate sprinkles (or any other type of sprinkles you like)


Step 1 In a small sauce pan mix the sweet condensed milk, the cocoa powder, the salt and the butter.

Step 2 Bring the sauce pan to the stove and heat it over medium-low heat.

Step 3 Cook it, mixing constantly until it thickens. A way to know is to run your wooden spoon (or spatula) in the middle of the mixture. If it takes a while for the mixture to move, then your brigadeiro is ready!

Step 4 Reserve, letting it cool to room temperature.

Step 5 In a plate or bowl, spread your sprinkles.

Step 6 – Once the brigadeiro is cool, grease your hands with butter and roll the brigadeiros into little balls.  Roll the brigadeiro balls into the sprinkles and place them in paper/foil candy cups.
