• 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons powdered cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • chocolate sprinkles for rolling


Combine condensed milk, cocoa, and 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until the brigadeiro mixture thickens and pulls away from the bottom and sides when the pan is tilted, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let the brigadeiro mixture cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
Scoop teaspoonfuls of the brigadeiro mixture and roll into balls with greased hands. Spread chocolate sprinkles on a shallow plate. Dip and roll the brigadeiros in sprinkles.
