Brigadeiros Chocolate Truffles  

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes



  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate sprinkles


In a medium saucepan add the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter and bring to a boil. Let boil 30 seconds then reduce to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Once the mixture is very thick, take the mixture off the heat and transfer to a greased bowl. Chill for 1 hour in the fridge.


Once chilled, pour the sprinkles in a dish. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Coat in the sprinkles and place in individual candy wrappers. Serve.


These truffles are very popular in Brazil.

Store the truffles in the fridge until serving.
