Brazilian Truffles, Brigadeiros

My lovely Brazilian friend Hannah shared these delicious chocolate truffles with us a few years ago and I just had to have the recipe. We’ve made them time and time again, they are incredibly easy and the children just love getting involved.

Ingredients

Milk Chocolate Truffles

(Makes 20)

  • 1 tin condensed milk 397g
  • Knob of butter
  • 4 tbs cocoa
  • Selection of coatings, we used, icing sugar, cocoa, chocolate sprinkles and hundreds and thousands.
  • 20 mini cases

White Chocolate Truffles

(Makes 20)

  • 1 tin condensed milk 397g
  • Knob of butter
  • 100g white chocolate
  • Selection of coatings, we used, icing sugar, cocoa, chocolate sprinkles and hundreds and thousands.
  • 20 mini cases

Instructions

Milk Chocolate Truffles

  1. Pour the condensed milk, butter and cocoa into a pan and mix well.
  2. Heat gently stirring all the time until the mixture thickens. It is thick enough when stirring leaves deep tracks in the mixture and you can see the pan bottom clearly.
  3. Set it to one side to cool.
  4. Grease your hands with butter and take a teaspoon sized amount and roll it into a ball.
  5. Toss it in your chosen coating and pop it in your mini case.

Brazilian Truffle With Hundreds and Thousands

These are super sweet and lovely with a strong coffee, but I wouldn’t recommend that for the kiddies or they’ll be hurtling around like loonies for days full of sugar and caffeine, yikes!
