I just finished making these for a gentleman friend for V-Day, and they were super easy! Also tasty...
So thanks for sharing the recipe with us! Cheesy

Okay I tried making this THREE times, cooking it in a pan over the stove, over low heat, stirring constantly for 20 minutes.

They harden a bit on the plate, but when I roll them into balls, they never stay as balls...they seem to "melt". I always have to store them in the refrigerator, and they end up sort of flat on the paper cups Sad

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Ainadaliel,
and folks still don't believe me when I say that the stovetop is harder to do!
Let me see what kind of hints I can give you:
1. If you need to chill them in order to roll, and they end up flat as soon as they reach room temperatures, they are definitely not done!
2. You mentioned low heat. Try medium.
3. Have you ever seen my coconut kisses thread? They are made on the stovetop, and the pictures illustrate the consistency of the dough pretty well. (Still, the right consistency is much easier to get with the kisses then with brigadeiros.
4. Please, don't give up! And if it still doesn't work, try adding some sweet cream and serving them in shot glasses. I think I posted a picture of that somewhere down there...

Hi! I wanted to thank you for such a quick and delicious recipe. I also want to share something I believe I've descovered  Cheesy. The first time I made the recipe I did it just as yours, the condensed milk was at room temperature and when it was in the microwave oven it spilled a little.
Now I've just finished making a second batch, instead this time the condensed milk was stored in the fridge, I stored it in a plastic container with a lid... But I've used this recipe twice and none of them have spilled, even though the second second batch was waaayy bigger that the normal recipe!  Grin

hope you find this useful!!

I just made these and they are wonderful...I changed the recipe to what I have on hand (I used 2 oz unsweetened chocolate) and it still came out wonderfully. I cooked it on my stove top because I don't have a mic safe dish large enough to hold the eruption and cooked it until it looked like the last shiny beautiful pic in your tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

That looks so good and so easy to make!  I love finding recipes with condensed milk in them, cause their cheap but mainly because they are delicious.

Have you ever tried an Avocado Milkshake? So good. You can find them at many Vietnamese deli's but you can make them at home with this recipe here: http://www.travelerslunchbox.com/journal/2006/5/31/the-secret-life-of-avocados.html

Also, here's a great blog posts of the many things you can do with condensed milk: http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/03/grocery-ninja-uses-for-condensed-milk.html

HI!!!!!!! I'm Brazilian, and i can say that this is one of the most popular, easy-making, and delicious sweets we have here. It's easier making it on the microwave, but i preffer cooking it directly on a pan. Smiley

just finished my batch of brigadeiros.  i made them for a class party.  i have a pretty high watt microwave, so i only had them in for a bout 3:30 'cuz i did not want to burn them.  at first i thought that i didn't have them in long enough, but after they cooled and were shaped, they are staying fine.  they will be in the fridge for another day (the party isn't until wednesday).  i tasted one.  they are so good!  not burnt at all.  i dont know what undercooked would taste like, but they taste like brownies!  thanks for sharing!!!!  <3 <3   Grin
