Ingredients

  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • Chef notes

    Sometimes, just a bite of something sweet and chocolaty will do. This two-ingredient dessert pulls together a couple of ingredients that are beautiful in their simplicity: sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder. Combined and rolled into a truffle-like bonbon, this is a popular Brazilian treat known as bregadeiro. For dessert, I like to whip up a batch, scoop out multiple teaspoons, and arrange the spoons on a platter for folks to grab and then slowly lick the chocolate off the spoon for an indulgent yet portion-controlled sweet nibble.

    Preparation

    Pour the condensed milk into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the cocoa and salt over the top, then whisk it into the milk. Place the pan on medium-high heat and stir constantly until the milk thickens and releases from the bottom of the pan, 5 to 8 minutes. Eat immediately by the spoonful or refrigerate until firm enough to roll into bite-size balls.
