Brazilian Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Chocolate sprinkled with more chocolate. What could be better?

Brazil’s most beloved chocolate nibble, the Brigadeiro, is so incredibly simple to make and yet so addictive. The soft sweet is made with just five simple ingredients hiding in your kitchen cupboards.

Whip up these chocolate truffles in minutes and give them to your kids as a snack or pass them round at your next dinner party. Whatever occasion, you’ll find out why they’re the main guest at every party in Brazil.

Equipment from
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Medium Saucepan
1 Tablespoon Butter Wooden Spoon
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk Sieve
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
40g Chocolate Sprinkles


  1. Grab a medium saucepan and combine the cocoa, butter and condensed milk over a medium heat. 
  2. Continuously stir with a wooden spoon for about 10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  3. Remove from the heat and let it cool enough to handle.
  4. Form the mixture into small balls and roll in chocolate sprinkles so you have a generous helping of sprinkles all over. 
  5. Or you can swap the chocolate sprinkles for desiccated coconut-why not have a mixture of the two! 
  6. Enjoy straight away or chill in the fridge until they’re ready to be devoured.
