  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons light rum

  1. In a medium non-stick pan, mix the milk, butter, nutmeg and rum. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon on low heat.
  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.

  3. Transfer to a greased plate and spread. Let it cool. (about 30 to 45 minutes)
  4. Put 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. Transfer the ball to the dish of shredded white chocolate and roll it around to coat all sides.
  7. Transfer the ball to a mini baking cup or s
Variation: You may add a little more nutmeg but be careful because it can be overpowering.
