Directions

For the traditional brigadeiros: Combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, cocoa powder and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir vigorously until you see heavy bubbles in the mixture, about 10 minutes. Transfer the batch to a porcelain plate and refrigerate for 1 hour or until it is completely cool. When cooled, butter your hands with the butter spray and using a tablespoon grab small amounts of the mixture and mold it into 1-inch balls. Roll each one in sprinkles and place in mini paper candy cups. Keep refrigerated for 30 minutes before serving.
