How to Make Brigadeiro

My mom is Brazilian, so we eat brigadeiro.
Brigadeiro is a delicious, Brazilian, chocolate made from sweetened condensed milk, Nesquick, and butter.

First, mix up two canes of sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 cup of Nesquick in a pan. We don't measure the Nesquick, but 1/4 cup is approximate. Cook it over medium-low heat.
See how it gets smoother, then thicker:
Make sure you mix it almost the whole time! If you start seeing clumps, you are burning it. (As you see in the picture above.

If you want to pour it on a cake, just let it cool for a little bit. If you want to roll it into balls, cook it until it gets thicker, let it cool completely, and roll it into balls. I recommend that you roll it into chocolate sprinkles. It's a messy job.

Here is a brigadeiro cake:
Sorry for the finger scraping on the cake. Don't worry, if I ever make you something, or you come to our house, that won't happen. But that's how good it is!
Are you Brazilian? Have you ever tried brigadeiro?
