  • Summary

    Somewhere between a fudgy chocolate truffle and a Tootsie Roll is the Brazilian confection known as the brigadeiro. The recipe is so dead simple it can hardly be called a recipe, and the possibilities are endless as far as decorating them goes. Traditionally, brigadeiros are found with a coating of thin, crunchy chocolate sprinkles, but you can go crazy with fun coatings here—roll the candy balls in cocoa powder, grated chocolate, toasted shredded coconut, or finely chopped nuts of all sorts.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups (14 ounces/397 grams) sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/3 cup (1 1/8 ounces/32 grams) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce/28 grams) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Chocolate sprinkles, grated chocolate, cocoa powder, or other creative coatings
