This traditional brigadeiro recipe requires only four ingredients! Start by combining condensed milk and cocoa powder in a bowl. Next, place the mix on the stove and cook at medium heat. Add some butter and a pinch of salt, and continue to cook the batter, stirring continuously for 20 minutes until the mixture is thick and fudgy. After refrigerating for an hour, take a spoonful of the batter, roll it into a ball, and cover it in chocolate sprinkles before serving.

2. Pistachio brigadeiros

These pistachio brigadeiros are a “defi-nut” crowd-pleaser. Begin by adding sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate, butter and pistachio paste to a pot on low heat. Next, stir for about 10 minutes until the consistency thickens. Roll the mixture into little balls before covering them with crushed pistachio bits.

3. Strawberry brigadeiros

Enjoy a fruity infusion of strawberry packed into a bite-sized brigadeiro. This recipe involves dehydrated strawberries crushed into a powder combined with condensed milk and cocoa powder. Once the batter becomes thick and fudgy, cut and mold it into balls. Then coat with more dehydrated strawberry powder.
