This week the Highchair Travelers set off for Brazil for some Brigadeiro! Incredibly popular in Brazil, these easy chocolate truffles are a constant at any party or festival. Simple to make and fun for kids, brigadeiro are a delicious first taste of Brazilian culture.
2 cans (14 oz each) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
various kinds and colors of candy sprinkles, coconut, chopped nuts, etc
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, cocoa and butter. Stirring constantly, bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and cook and stir for 10-15 minutes until thick and glossy. When the candy mixture is ready, it will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and cling together.
Pour mixture into buttered 13×9 pan, allow to cool completely. (You can refrigerate it to speed the cooling process.)
Once cool, use a tablespoon or melon baller to help shape balls of candy.
desfrutar da sua refeição!
