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.

I love this recipe! I have made it several times and it is easy and tasty. Last time I subbed peanut butter (dietary reasons) for the butter and it tasted great. Thanks for the recipe!

VERY simple recipe, VERY good taste!!! VERY good dessert! I love this. I made it and served it to friends and family, and it is a hit. We also have 4 girls here from Brazil, and they said this is authentic. Actually, I must admit that THEY made this, as I stood back and watched. It is VERY easy. :) Will make again!

This recipe was as easy as it looks. I doubled it for my son's school project (South American Feast) and I came up about 10 short. Other than that, it was simple and delicious!
