  • Food proccesor, blender, or coffee grinder
  • Small fine mesh sieve
  • Miniature cupcake liners


  • 1 (14oz) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 T unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup freeze dried raspberries pulverized
  • Red or pink food coloring optional
  • Freeze dried raspberries, sprinkles, coconut flakes for garnish


  • Pulverize the freeze dried raspberries into powder and sift out the seeds through a fine mesh strainer.
  • Add the sweetened condensed milk, butter, and raspberry powder to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring the whole time.
  • Turn the heat to medium low and stir constantly for about five minutes so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. The mixture is “done” when you tilt the pan and it comes clean off the bottom in one mass.
  • Pour the mixture onto a greased plate or shallow bowl, then chill in the fridge for about one hour.
  • Scoop the mixture in roughly 1 tablespoon-sized balls and roll in between greased hands until smooth.
  • Roll the fudge in raspberry powder, sprinkles, flaked coconut, chopped nuts, etc. and place in miniature cupcake liners.


Sifting out the seeds from the raspberry powder is an optional step, but will result in a completely smooth brigadeiro.
Store the brigaderos in the fridge for two weeks or in an airtight container in the freezer for about two months. Transfer the fudge to the fridge to thaw.
