Traditionally served at children’s parties, these chewy little fudge balls make a perfect dessert to end a South American feast. They require only a few ingredients and are quite simple to make. The only trick when making them is to ensure you cook the fudge until thick and sticky so that they hold their shape when rolled. Aside from that just make sure you have plenty to go around as these are bound to be a hit with both young and old.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
395g tinned condensed milk
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
40g butter, plus extra for greasing
150g good-quality dark chocolate sprinkles, for rolling
20 small paper cases

Method

  1. Pour the condensed milk into a small heavy-based saucepan. Sift in the cocoa, add the butter and place over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture begins to simmer. Reduce the heat to low–medium and cook for a further 10–15 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent the mixture from burning and sticking to the base of the pan. When the sauce has thickened into a very sticky fudge, spoon onto a heatproof tray and set aside for 10 minutes, to cool slightly. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, or until completely cool.
  2. Lightly grease your hands with butter and roll 1 heaped tablespoonful of the fudge at a time to make even-sized balls. Roll each ball in chocolate sprinkles to coat and place each into a paper case. Return to the refrigerator for a further 15 minutes, or until firm but not hard.

Note

  • Brigaderios can be made a few days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Set out at room temperature for 15 minutes to soften slightly before serving.
