BRIGADEIRO-(chocolate candy)

A traditional candy from Brazil that is typically served at parties. It tastes like chocolate-caramel and is very easy to make!
40 servings(40 candies) cooking time:30 minutes

Sweetened condensed milk------1 can( 14 oz-397gms)
Butter------------------------1 tablespoon
Cocoa ------------------------3 tablespoons
Chocolate sprinkles-----------to decorate

Over medium-low heat, stir vigorously the three ingredients.
Cook the mixture until it thickens enough to show the pan bottom during stirring (it will be firm enough to stay together and not spread)
Pour into a greased dish and let cool to room temperature (or chill a few minutes in the fridge)
Grease your hands with butter and take small amounts of candy and form into 1 1/2 inch balls.
Roll the balls in chocolate jimmies to decorate.
If the balls don't hold their shape, cook an additional 5 minutes until it thickens up more.

you can use coconut powder for rolling if u dint have jimmies.
You can use Nesquick Chocolate instead of cocoa powder
