Brigadeiro are the popular Brazilian sweets made with condensed milk and cocoa that are never missing during children's parties, the recipe was born in the 40s and these chocolates were named in honor of the "Brigadeiro" Eduardo Gomes, a famous politician and Brazilian military. The recipe for these Brazilian sweets is very easy and can be useful both on Valentine's Day to prepare the chocolates yourself to give to your loved one and at carnival if you have to organize a party for your children, I assure you that they will literally be snapped up. The brigadeiro recipe can also be found in the March issue of "la prova del cuoco magazine" with which I have been collaborating for a few months by publishing my recipes. Good cold Monday to those who pass through here.
How to make Brigadeiro
In a thick-bottomed saucepan, mix 200 ml of condensed milk, a tablespoon of cocoa and a tablespoon of butterCook over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon for about 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens and comes off the sides of the saucepan.
Then turn off the heat and transfer the mixture into a greased bowl and let it cool.
Once cooled, resume the mixture and with buttered hands, form balls with a diameter of 3 cm and roll them in chocolate sprinkles.
As you form the balls, place them in paper cups. Arrange the brigadeiro on a serving plate and serve
