These are fun! Cherry flavored Kool-Aid and red sugar for Valentines Day and Christmas. Green Kool-Aid and green sugar for St. Patricks Day and Christmas. Use different flavored Kool-Aids and sugars for themed birthday parties.
  • 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • envelope of Kool-Aid flavor of your choice
  • colored sugar
  1. In a medium non-stick pan, mix the milk and butter on low heat stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. After five minutes slowly add the Kool-Aid stirring constantly.
  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. Put the sugars or other coating into a separate dish.
  5. To mold the brigadeiro into balls, take a teaspoonful of mixture and roll it between your buttered hands.
  6. Transfer the ball to the dish of sugar and roll it around to coat all sides.
  7. 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.
