homemade brigadeiros

Tis the season for entertaining and what better way to show friends and family how much you love them by making homemade brigadeiros! Brigadeiros are a Brazillian sweet treat, kind of like a truffle (think fudge meets a bon bon) and they are just about the easiest thing to make! 
In a sauce pan, combine cocoa, butter and condensed milk.
Cook over medium heat, stirring until thickened and shiny (it took me about 10-12 minutes)
Remove from the heat and let cool or refrigerate to speed up the process.
Once cool, use a melon baller to scoop the mixture and shape into balls.
Roll each ball in sprinkles, powdered sugar, nuts, coconut, etc.

A box of brigadeiros makes a great hostess gift or even a party favor or you can just eat the entire batch yourself :)
