Strawberry Brigadeiros a spring twist to the classic brazilian dessert. Perfect for the spring season and since Easter is fast approaching i thought this would be a nice dessert to make. It’s a very easy recipe that anyone can make.
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup Nesquik strawberry powder, dry
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Sprinkles of choice
- red food coloring, optional
In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine the sweetened condensed milk and Nesquik strawberry powder. Stir to combine.
Stir the mixture constantly and when it boils, reduce the heat to medium low and continue to stir.
Keep stirring until the mixture will become thick and dough-like. A quick way to know when it's ready is if you slide your spoon across the bottom of the pan and you can see the bottom for a second then enough of the liquid has evaporated. This is also a good time if you really want your brigadeiro to pop you can add the red food coloring.
Remove from the heat and add the butter, salt, and vanilla. Stir until completely combined.
Pour mixture onto a baking pan or container lined with parchment paper. Let it sit outside to cool down or put in the fridge for about 30min-1 hour until it's cooled and has harden a little bit.
Once the dough has been sufficiently chilled, remove from the fridge. Grease your hands with either butter, margarine, or cooking spray. Grab off large pieces of the mixture and roll in your hands. You can use a cookie scooper to make the size consistent.
Once a ball has formed, roll the ball into sprinkles of your choice. Place the truffles into miniature muffin liners to serve. Enjoy!
