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 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.
