Strawberry Fudge Coxinha

Taking the everyday “docinho de festa” to the next level! Sophisticate it up by adding strawberries to every kid’s favorite sweet in Brazil with the shape of every kid’s favorite savory appetizer: Coxinha! So fun.
You already know what a #Brigadeiro is (Brazilian fudge, chocolate balls, rolled up deliciousness) and I have a recipe on my feed here of the “Healthified” version as well over on BrazilianFusion. These are EASY, 3 ingredients and takes 10 minutes to make. You can roll them up into little balls or wrap them around strawberries or any fruit of your choice. I love this combination, and they are the perfect treat for Easter!

Brigadeiro Stuffed Strawberries “Coxinha de Brigadeiro e Morango”
1 14oz can of condensed milk
1 tbsp butter
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I used cacao powder)
Chocolate Sprinkles for rolling and decorating (cacao nibs are also a great option”
Medium strawberries, stemmed
Place all ingredients in a thick pan (thick cast iron preferred) at medium heat.
Pour one can of condensed milk first.

Pour one can of condensed milk first.


Mix all together until homogeneous.

Mix all together until homogeneous.

Mix until you can see that the mixture is sliding from the bottom of the pan, about 8-10 minutes.
This means it won’t be stick when cooled and you’ve reached the correct consistency and will be easily “spooned”.
Add mixture to plate and transfer and allow it it cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours in the fridge or even overnight.
Butter up your hands as if you were applying lotion! It’s fun!
Use a tablespoon for your serving size, forming little balls around the strawberry with your hands shaping them like a “Coxinha”.DSC_0810 DSC_0811 DSC_0841DSC_0856DSC_0825DSC_0842DSC_0843DSC_0815DSC_0817 DSC_0818 DSC_0832DSC_0866DSC_0820    DSC_0834    DSC_0851  DSC_0857 DSC_0858 DSC_0860 DSC_0865
Dip them and run each fudge strawberry coxinha through the chocolate sprinkles and leave at room temperature or in fridge. Cut in half for WOW Factor right before serving. That’s it! Too easy!
The conventional chocolate balls or typical brigadeiros are definitely a conversation starter! Tell them you learned from your Brazilian friend, aka, ME!
