Brigadeiros (served in little paper cups) are popular at children’s parties.




Grease a casserole dish or other non-stick baking dish Heat your condensed milk, butter, and cocoa powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until butter is melted and the mixture is slightly thickened (10-15 minutes). Add a pinch of salt and stir. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish. Refrigerate for one hour.


Pour your sprinkles onto a large plate for easy coating. Using a small, 1.57” ice cream scoop or melon baller, scoop out the hardened mixture and roll each scoop into a smooth ball with your hands. Toss each ball into the dish with chocolate sprinkles until they are evenly coated. Put each ball into a candy cup and refrigerate until ready to serve.
