Actually, the original recipe calls for the regular pan on the stove. You can mix the ingredients in the pan, and stirr for about 10 minutes. The problem is that you have to do it a couple of times, until you get them right. If you don't cook enough, they'll be too sloppy to roll, if you cook too lon, the turn into rocks, and believe, they taste like crap, and don't think it's compared to hard candy. It's junk. The microwave option is "The dummies guide to brigadeiros".

Hi KatyMai,
coming back to you with an answer about using soy condensed milk. I just tried it. The can here in Brazil has a little less then the dairy, so a thought I'd leave it a little less in the microwave. It bubbled for five and a half minutes, and when it came out, it was as fluid as porridge. What a flop, I thought, and abandoned the mix on the counter to go after some sewing. Whan I came back, it had cooled off, and was considerably thicker, but not enough to roll. So I gave it 2 more minutes, and 1 more minute later. One problem: it is getting thicker, no doubt, but it's also getting incredibly sweet (dehidrating, probably), and kind of chewy-sticky. I stuck the remaining (it's actually yummy, so there's not much left) in the fridge and will look after it tomorrow. I tried to roll one, but it was still too soft, and already very gum-like.
Once you can't have dairy, I believe it's worth a try. All together, my mix stayed in the oven for about 8 1/2 minutes. And once it gets so sweet, maybe sugarfree cocoa would be good.
Let me know if you give it a try.
Take care, brazilian greetings.

I just gave this a try and I think I left it cooling in the microwave too long. It never really bubbled up a lot.... Leave it to me to mess up a fool proof recipe. I think I can still salvage it. It's chocolate after all  Grin

WHOOOAAAHHH! (or maybe Woe!)
"Sugarfree Cocoa"??
I thought all along you were working with plain old sugar free cocoa, the powdered kind that comes in a box, that kind of tastes like dirt unless you add milk and sugar (I know, I've tried it  Roll Eyes), the unsweetened kind that you use for baking....

So, does Brigadeiros call for drinking cocoa, the powdered kind that comes with the sugar already in it and you add to hot milk or water and it makes the drink??

Help, please....

Thanks for the tute!

I just made these tonight and they are yummy but taste a bit like uncooked cookie dough?  Is that normal?

Here are mine!!! They were a huuuuge hit in my writing class tonight!

I had the plain in chocolate sprinkles, some in cocoa powder and the last rolled in sweetened coconut flakes. The coconut flakes we just happened to have and we had more dough leftover so we added those ones too and they were totally the best! I will for sure make these again! Thanks so much, yum!

Hah! I made mine with unsweetened baking cocoa too! I was thinking about using drinking cocoa cause I have some really tasty white cocoa mix but I thought it would be too sweet.
