Brigaderiros (A Chocolate Treat)

Homeschool is so rough sometimes. We have been baking/ cooking a lot lately. For my kindergartener, we made ice cream last week. We made jello this week. So rough... (wink, wink)

Then last Thursday, during our study of Brazil, we found a recipe called Brigaderiros. I've never heard of them, but they sounded good-- anything with chocolate sounds good, right?

Here is the recipe from our Trip Around the World book, which goes with the "My Father's World" curriculum (MFW) . For more info about MFW, check out my homeschool button above.

Brigaderiros (A Chocolate Treat)

2 tablespoons margarine
1 can (14 oz) sweetened, condensed milk
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
chocolate sprinkles

Mix the margarine, condensed milk and the cocoa together. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously until thick. (this step took us about 30 minutes!)Remove from heat and cool completely. Grease your hands with margarine and roll the chocolate into small balls. Roll the ball in the chocolate sprinkles.
(Try not to eat them all at once!)

My son didn't enjoy getting his hands full of margarine to roll them, but he did a few. It turned out to be like a chocolate taffy, sort of like a Tootsie Roll. They didn't last too long!
