No-Bake Brigadeiro with a Crunch!

Brigadeiro is a Brazilian little treat. Its perfect for warm weather when you don’t want to use an oven – hence ‘no-bake’! Plus its a perfect little chocolatey treat with a nice coffee or a lovely tea! They are EXTREMELY easy to bake and they go really fast when you start eating them! 😉 Ive added a little extra Ammna touch to mine by adding pretzels, but literally you can coat them with whatever you like!

Here’s how you bake them!

  1. 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (350g)
  1. 1/4 cup of dark cocoa powder (kakao for all the ‘swedes’)
  2. 1 tbsp butter
  3. 1/2 cup crushed pretzels (‘salta pinnar’ for all the ‘swedes’)
  4. 1/2 cup melted 80% dark chocolate


  1. In a frying pan, heat the condensed milk, cacao powder, and butter on medium-low heat until it comes together in a soft dough like texture.
  2. Then pour the mixture onto a buttered plate or pan and pat down to spread out so that it can cool easily. Let it cool for roughly 10 min or until cool enough to touch.
  3. Once cooled, pull apart roughly 1 tablespoon of the ‘mixture’ and roll into a ball. Coat the ball with your crushed pretzels and then dip into melted chocolate to coat all of it.
  4. Place into a small pastry cup and refrigerate until the chocolate hardens – this should take roughly 15 min. Sprinkle a little icing sugar on top if you want them to look a bit more snazzy, and then Voila! You’re Brigadeiro’s are ready to be eaten and loved!

Easy Peasy!
