• 1x 14oz can of sweet condensed milk
• 1/2 cup chocolate powder, such as Nescau or Nesquik
• 1 Tbsp margarine or butter (plus more for hands)
Add the condensed milk, the butter, and the chocolate powder to a medium saucepan and stir.
Cook over medium heat, for approximately 10 minutes, stirring repeatedly and scraping the sides and the bottom of the pan with a spatula to avoid burning.
The brigadeiro is ready when you scrape the bottom of the pan, and the brigadeiro takes 2-3 seconds to come back to its place.
Pour the hot brigadeiro into a dish or a plate, and let it cool – about 2 hours. DO NOT REFRIGERATE TO COOL.
Meanwhile, pour sprinkles in a deep plate or bowl.
When the brigadeiro is cooled, butter your hands, and scoop 1/2 Tbsp portions and roll little balls.
Roll the little balls in the sprinkles.
Keep them in a cool place or in the refrigerator until serving time.
