Bittersweet Coffee Brigadeiro
In this brigadeiro version, you will have the feeling of eating a piece of coffee with sugar, as if you were drinking coffee in a Brazilian bakery, or "padoca" as we call it. I dare you to eat only one!
An all-time Brazilian classic, the brigadeiro is like a truffle that is present in all birthday parties, doesn't matter if you are celebrating a year or a century.
Add 50 ml of water and 1 tsp of instant coffee to a pan over medium heat. Stir until the coffee is completely dissolved
Add 2 cups of condensed milk and stir to combine
Add ⅓ cup of dark chocolate chips
Add 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tsp of flaky salt
Stir constantly for 15-20m until the mixture starts to thicken and pull away from the bottom of the pan. The brigadeiro will be ready when it starts to drain in a single thick syrup from the spoon, without falling in batches
Transfer to a container and cover with cling film, pressing directly against the surface. Place in the refrigerator for 1h to firm
Place 2 tbsp of coarse sugar and 1 tsp of instant coffee in a plate
Shape the chilled chocolate mixture into balls and roll them in the sugar and coffee mixture. The bittersweet coffee brigadeiro is ready
Make yourself happy with this sweet treat. Enjoy!
