This is a recipe from my Brazilian friend, Camila, I met in Brussels.  It was delicious and easy to make!  It tastes like a chocolate caramel, if that makes sense.  You'll just have to try it ;-)

1 can of sweetened-condensed milk
1 tablespoon of butter
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder*
chocolate sprinkles

Mix all ingredients and cook in microwave for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes (I'm not sure if my mom's new microwave is more powerful, but I had to stir every minute).  Allow to cool.  Grease hands and roll into small balls.  Roll balls in chocolate sprinkles.

*I read that American sweetened-condensed milk is not quite as sweet as Brazilian so someone recommended using a sweetened cocoa like Nestle.


  1. Just found your blog from Dinner Time Ideas. I can't believe you have a recipe for brigadeiros! My husband lived in Brazil for a couple years and loves these things. I can't wait to try them!
