One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, “How can I make brigadeiros at home?”
You’re in luck, because I’m sharing my recipe for the best brigadeiros ever. With just a few ingredients and the right technique, you can transform dessert into a special occasion.
In this video, I show how to cook the brigadeiro to achieve just the right consistency. In the second half, you'll see how to roll it in your hands to make the perfect round ball.
This is my favorite recipe to use at home, so I’m excited to share it with you.

This is my recipe favorite and I guarantee that you'll love it!
If the consistency is not perfect and it's too soft to roll in your hands, don't worry. Just enjoy it the traditional way: by spooning it directly from the bowl and eating it right there.
I used 70% dark chocolate, but you don't have to. Pick your favorite or use what you have in your pantry.
Note: if you don't have chocolate sprinkles or paper cups, you can buy them here.
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (395 g)
- 100 g of dark chocolate (70% or 85% cocoa)
- 2 tbsp of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of vermicelli chocolate sprinkles
- about 25 paper cups
For a creamier brigadeiro, after the chocolate and butter are melted, replace the spoon or spatula for a whisk until the brigadeiro is ready.
There are dozens of flavors and varieties you can create once you're in your brigadeiro happy place. Here are some flavors that we love.
