Variation of popular Brazilian candy. Also known as "Branquinho."
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons of white chocolate (preferably powder)
  • shredded white chocolate
  1. In a medium non-stick pan, mix the milk, butter and white chocolate. On low heat stir constantly with a wooden spoon.
  2. Continue stirring and cooking until it thickens and becomes more difficult to stir. You will start to see the bottom of the pan more clearly. When the mixture seems more like a dough and less like a batter, and it pulls from the sides of the pan easily, it is done. This should take approximately 20 - 25 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a greased plate and spread. Let it cool. (about 30 to 45 minutes)
  4. Spread the shredded white chocolate into a separate dish.
  5. To shape the brigadeiro into balls, take a teaspoonful of mixture and roll it between your buttered hands.
  6. Roll in shredded white chocolate.
  7. Transfer the ball to a mini baking cup or square of parchment for serving. Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
