Brazilian Chocolate Fudge Candies (Brigadeiros)
Typically, these confections are made with sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter. Our version includes cinnamon and instant espresso for heightened flavor. Classic brigadeiros are coated with only chocolate sprinkles. But to add nuttiness, we mixed chopped cashews into the sprinkles.
14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted
01In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, whisk the condensed milk, cocoa, espresso, cinnamon and salt. Add the butter then set over medium and cook, stirring constantly with a silicone spatula and scraping along the sides, until the mixture reaches 225°F, about 10 minutes; it will appear matte and slide around freely in the pan. Immediately pour into a wide, shallow baking dish. Let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
