Brigadeiros recipe


  • 300g condensed milk, weigh it rather than pour it
  • 3 tbsp. drinking chocolate
  • 1 tbsp. butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Grease and line a 20cm square baking dish.

  2. Put the milk, chocolate powder and butter together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.

  3. Heat everything together, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has thickened enough to pull away from the bottom of the saucepan whilst stirring, around 10-15 minutes.

  4. Once the mixture reaches this stage, pour it into the prepared baking dish.

  5. Once the mixture has cooled enough to touch, roll small balls from the mixture using your hands and leave them to cool hard.

  6. If you want to, roll the balls in cocoa powder, icing sugar or chopped nuts before leaving them to set.

This recipe makes around 8 large portions of Brigadeiros. A lovely thing to do would be to box these little balls up and give them away as gifts. You can very easily add some flavour to this fudge - try adding in a few tsp. of vanilla extract, strawberry essence or peppermint essence.
