Gaby's Bakery - Brazilian Chocolate Truffles

Our international culinary tour stops off at Brazil today for one of their most classic desserts – Brigadeiros, a chocolate truffle speciality.

Brazilian Chocolate Truffles

400g (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
30g unsalted butter
20g cocoa powder
Pinch of salt

Topping to decorate:
chocolate sprinkles
chopped pistachios
desiccated coconut

In a saucepan heat the condensed milk, butter, cocoa powder and salt until it boils, then reduce heat to medium and cook for appx 10 mins, stirring so it doesn’t burn until it is thick and sticks to the wooden spoon. Once ready, pour mixture into a bowl and allow to cool for a couple of hours.

Place your toppings in small bowl. Butter your hands to stop the mixture sticking to them and then take dessertspoon size amounts of the mixture and roll into balls. 

Roll these in the bowls with toppings and then place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge to set.

The twins hijacked the kitchen this week as they're now off school for the Easter break. I love it when they get involved as they're both keen cooks and make an entertaining double act. This recipe involves a lot of chocolate and shredded wheat. The shredded wheat playing a large role in the textural experience which really makes this both an attractive and taste-bud titillating treat.
