Difficulty: Very Easy | Makes (20-25)


  1. Begin by getting a pan and pouring all the ingredients together under medium low heat
  2. Keep mixing these ingredients until they incorporate. The mix will be ready when the size reduces and the consistency becomes much thicker on the spoon (you can taste)
  3. Pour into a mixing bowl, cover and allow to cool in fridge for 10/15 minutes
  4. Meanwhile pour the chocolate sprinkles onto a flat plate
  5. Once this has cooled enough, you are ready to form the Brigadeiros.
  6. Place butter on your hands and begin form them into small spheres (making sure to do this quickly or they will just melt in your hand)
  7. Put the brigadeiro onto the flat plate and then finally place them in the small baking cases and then store in a container or plates covered in fridge to set for 2/3 Hours


1 tin of sweetened condensed milk (try to find Nestle one)
