To celebrate Valentine’s day, I wanted to make some chocolates for myself. I usually make truffles, but I wanted to change things up this year. When I was small, I loved it when one of my friend’s mother will make Brigadeiros for special occasions. This is the recipe that my mother got from her mother. Brigadeiros are a traditional treat from Brazil.


2 tbsp margarine/butter
1 can  (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp powdered chocolate
Chocolate confetti
Small cupcake foil





1. Mix the condensed milk, chocolate powder, and butter in a small saucepan and stir over low heat. Keep stirring.

2. Heat mixture up until the mixture thickens until the you can see the bottom of the pan while stirring. This should be about 10 minutes.

3. Pour mixture to a well greased surface or container. Wait until the mixture cools to room temperature.

4. Grease hands with vegetable oil, and roll the chocolates into small spheres. Cover the chocolate with chocolate confetti, and keep the chocolates in the small cupcake foil.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
