Brigadeiros: easy sweets

from The Vegeterranean: Italian Vegetarian Cooking, Malu Simões & Alberto Musacchio, Simon & Schuster, 2008.

This was such an easy sweet to make. All I needed was sweetened condensed milk, butter and cocoa powder—and sprinkles of some sort (I used chocolate) to roll them in. It only took a short boil on the stove and it was ready. Waited for the mixture to cool and then rolled them in the sprinkles. So easy.

They turned out to be melt-in-the-mouth chocolate sweets though a little too sweet for my taste. Sweet-tooths would love them.

I ended up stirring mine into cups of black coffee and found I had a wonderful drink somewhat like the sweet coffee drinks you get in some Asian countries.
