Versatile. Great for kids parties. Any dry cake mix will work. Not as gooey as traditional brigadeiros.
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • ¾ cup cake mix, dry
  • colored sprinkles
  1. In a medium non-stick pan, mix the sweetened condensed milk and butter. 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. Remove from heat and slowly stir in dry cake mix. Keep stirring until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Transfer to a greased plate and spread. Let it cool. (about 30 to 45 minutes)
  5. Put the sprinkles or other coating into a separate dish.
  6. To shape the brigadeiro into balls, take a teaspoonful of mixture and roll it between your buttered hands.
  7. Transfer the ball to the dish of sprinkles and roll it around to coat all sides.
  8. Transfer the ball to a mini baking cup or square of parchment for serving. They keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Any dry cake mix will work, example: white or yellow For different flavors try the "Party Rainbow Chip" or "Orange Supreme" cake mix. Rolled in colored sugars.
