There is just something so indulgent about chocolate and caramel and anything that is mixed with condensed milk and I think these are the perfect treat for any sugar obsessed/chocoholic and lover of all things delightfully decadent.
Here is a quick and easy way to make Brigadeiros – the Brazilian’s response to truffles.
Note: These can be quite messy to make but a lot of fun and so delicious.
- One tub of condensed milk – you can also make these with caramel flavour condensed milk
- 4 table spoons of pure dark coco powder – you can also make these with milk choc or white chocolate powder.
- 2 table spoons of unsalted butter
- Coating such as chocolate grains, rasbperry bits, millions and trillions and coconut shavings, or simply sugar.
Mix all the ingredients in a pan at low heat. Do not let the mix boil. Mix until you can see the bottom of the pan and the mix is semi-viscose. Once it gets to this point let it chill for a bit.
Cover your hands in butter and shape them into balls of chocolate then cover them in your chosen coating. Set them all up on a plate and put them in the fridge to solidify.
Note: I always get mini cupcake cases to keep the little bonbons intact.
