Halloween Gourmet Chocolate Fudge Balls
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 15-18 brigadeiros
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
  • ⅔ cup good quality chocolate cut into small pieces *The best one is Callebaut but you can also use good quality chocolate chips or chocolate bar of your preference. They turn out delicious either way!
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • truffle liners
  1. Grease a shallow plate or platter with butter. Set aside.
  2. On medium heat, melt the butter and chocolate pieces in a small nonstick heavy saucepan. Add condensed milk. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir constantly with wooden spoon.
  3. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick and shiny.
  4. TIP: Tilt the pan and when you see the mixture is pulling away from the bottom of the pan, the brigadeiro is ready!
  5. Pour mixture into shallow plate. Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator.
  6. Grease your hands with butter (make sure it’s not too greasy). Using a tablespoon, scoop mixture. Roll it into a ball and coat it with chocolate sprinkles.
  7. Place fudge balls in truffle liners.
  8. TIP: You can consume them right away or place them in a container (not in the fridge) and wait 2-3 days. They will get a little crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. My favorite!
