What are condensed milk chocolate truffles?

They’re excatly what’s written on the tin: condensed milk chocolates! These are actually a Brazilian recipe called Brigadeiro. Although, I have a couple of sweets recipes on this site, they’re mainly Asian recipes.

So why do I have a Brazilian sweets recipe here? Well, when I was living in the town of Iga, there was a large Brazilian population. It was so big that there were a few businesses that catered to a mainly Brazilian clientelle. I remember often seeing these brigadeiro sitting on store shelves.

How are condensed milk chocolate truffles made?

I’m using two ingredients: cocoa powder and condensed milk. I measured out about 50 grams of cocoa powder, and about a hundred grams of condensed milk. If you happen to be amazed by my condensed milk in a tube, you’re not the only one. I had a bunch of people over on Reddit asking me where to buy condensed milk. You know,  it sounds like a million-dollar idea in the making!

I microwaved the condensed milk for about 30 seconds and then poured it into a large mixing bowl. After that I sifted about a third of the cocoa powder into the condensed milk and I mixed it all together. 

Now I should have done this part a lot quicker than it actually took me because by the time I got the final third of the cocoa powder in there, the thing had  hardened into some kind of delicious concrete.

I tried to use a plastic glove and mix the whole thing by hand, but that was just a waste of time. I also tried setting the mixing bowl on top of some warm water hoping that it would soften as it warmed up, but it didn’t. It just fought back like some kind of dessert-based sentient life form. Eventually, I was able to get all of it mixed together and scrape it out of the bowl onto some plastic wrap. 

Molding and shaping the Condensed Milk Chocolate Truffles

Now after wrapping it and kind of shaping it together,
I put it in the fridge for an hour to set. After taking it out of the fridge, I
thought it would be best to cut this whole thing into six pieces, but it turns
out that six pieces would have been way too big. So I cut them into twelve, and to be honest, I think I could have cut these a little bit smaller, only because the nut-to-chocolate ratio would have been much better balanced. 

I shaped each piece into a rounded square by hand and Mrs. Eats jumped in and she helped out too. Now this process was really fun because it brought back childhood memories of mixing dirt and water together and shaping it into random stuff. After making a square, I pressed an almond into the center and rolled the truffle into some cocoa powder. After cranking a few of these out, we’ve made some super simple condensed milk chocolate truffles!
