Brazilian Sweets: How to Make Delicious Brigadeiros

Chocolate and lemon Brazilian brigadeiros

A brigadeiro is a traditional and extremely popular dessert in Brazil. People compare it to a truffle, others say it’s fudge, but most Brazilians claim it’s neither. They say it’s an entirely unique treat made up of condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter and different toppings. #YUM

In this quick three minute video, The Cooking Foodie shows step-by-step how easy it is to make this delicious confection.


  • Butter – 1 tablespoon butter (15g)
  • Sweetened condensed milk – I can (14 oz)
  • Cocoa powder – ¼ cup (30g)
  • Toppings: dessicated coconut, sprinkles (flavor of choice), crushed pistachios or halved almonds (?)

If you feel like getting creative with the recipe, you could use colored toppings, glow in the dark edible stars or put tiny banners as decoration. These sweets would make a perfect addition to any dessert table. Give it a try and send us a pic of your best brigadeiros. Provechito!
