You can find many versions of brigadeiros, but chocolate is the traditional flavor for these dense, chewy fudge balls rolled in sprinkles, a treasured treat in Brazil.

  • Yields: 2 Dozen


Bring butter, cream, and milk to a boil in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add chocolate and cocoa powder, and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is the consistency of dense, fudgy batter, about 16 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; let cool. Chill until set, at least 4 hours.

Using a tablespoon, portion out fudge and roll into balls. Roll each ball in chocolate sprinkles until evenly coated. Chill until ready to serve.


4 tbsp. unsalted butter

2 tbsp. heavy cream

3 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

1 cup chocolate sprinkles

2 (14-oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
