Brigadeiros – Brazilian dessert

Brigadeiros are small fudgy balls that are popular in Brazil. This dessert occupies a space in almost all the parties in Brazil. I came to know about this recipe from my brother. He said it is so simple to make this at home but it will be a different sweet and dessert for the parties. Then I started to know more about brigadeiros.

Brigadeiro was created in Brazil in the honour of Brazilian Brigadier. These are made with condensed milk, cocoa powder, eggs, butter and sprinkles. Brigadeiro can be made without eggs too. This is an eggless verison. Though there are many versions of brigadeiros made today, this one is a classic recipe. We can make this sweet in no time and less effort is required to make this sweet. Since the condensed milk used is sweet, there is no need to add any additional sugar. I adapted this recipe from here.
