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.

Tip

Don’t turn up the heat to rush the cooking; the chocolate mixture can easily scorch. Medium heat and constant stirring yield a perfectly smooth, silky texture.

I found the chocolate mixture hard to work with - very sticky and difficult to roll in a ball. The taste of the cinnamon overwhelmed every other flavor.
