    1. 1
      Over medium-low heat, stir vigorously the three ingredients.

      Cook the mixture until it thickens enough to show the pan bottom during stirring (it will be firm enough to stay together and not spread) Pour into a greased dish and let cool to room temperature (or chill a few minutes in the fridge) Grease your hands with butter and take small amounts of candy and form into 1 1/2 inch balls.
    3. 3
      Roll the balls in chocolate jimmies to decorate.

      If the balls don't hold their shape, cook an additional 5 minutes until it thickens up more.

      The first time I tried to make brigadeiros using a Brazilian friends recipe, they did not turn out as perfect as I would like with the ball shape. I wanted to redeem my kitchen fail and came across this recipe. PERFECT! I made these today following the instructions to the tee and they came out great. I would say after every two brigadeiros rolled you need more butter ha ha. I used sprinkles to coat and some crushed peanuts I had on hands as I know pistachios are also traditional. I will save this recipe and make again! Thanks for having the perfect recipe.

      Made these for the summer reading program during South America week. Used multi-colored sprinkles as they were so much cheaper. Children loved them. Thanks.
