How to cook
Gather and portion all ingredients.
Add the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter to a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is nice and thick like caramel.
Refrigerate for about an hour or until mixture is cooled and moldable.
Rub a little butter on your hands to prevent sticking when rolling the brigadeiro.
Portion the brigadeiro mixture into 1-2 tablespoons and roll in your hands to create a ball.
Roll all the balls in chocolate sprinkles and place in mini cupcake liners if you have them.
