Brigidaires (Brazilian Chocolate Balls)

My husband has a new addiction...Saveur Magazine. He has an entire list of recipes that he wants to whip up...and did I mention, an entire list that he wants ME to whip up! Well, I was up to the first challenge he gave me, especially because it only had 6 ingredients, and three of them were chocolate! These fudge balls are simple, just require some stirring, which anyone can do. The first time we made these we handed them out to all our neighbors to enjoy, and the second time we made them for the faculty of my husband’s school. They are perfect for impressing a crowd, obviously!

Brigidaires (Brazilian Fudge Balls)
Printable Version

4 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. heavy cream
2 (14 oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
3 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1 cup chocolate sprinkles

Bring butter, cream, and milk to a boil in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add chocolate and cocoa powder, and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is the consistency of dense, fudgy batter, about 16 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; let cool. Chill until set, at least 4 hours.

Using a tablespoon, portion out fudge and roll into balls. Roll each ball in chocolate sprinkles until evenly coated. Chill until ready to serve.

My husband lived in Brazil and had these brigadeiros at all the holiday parties. We made these tonight for a party this we're hosting this weekend. He's already requested I make another batch for New Year's Eve! They are great!
