” Brigadeiro with Guinness


350ml Guinness

400g of condensed milk

1 spoon of butter

Cocoa powder or chocolate sprinkles


Part 1 – beer

Boil the beer over low heat until it reduces from 350ml to 150ml, which takes 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down.

Part 2 – brigadeiro

In a medium heavy-based saucepan, heat the butter and condensed milk, to boiling, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to medium-low; cook for 10-15 mins, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick.

Add the chill Guinness stirring constantly until the mixture is thick again and shiny and starts to pull away from the bottom.

Let it cool down.

Butter your hands and pinch off some of the dough to make 2.5cm balls.”

…..  We rolled the balls in crushed nuts/cocoa powder or you can use chocolate sprinkles or flakes. Why not experiment!

Thanks Dani!
