Yield: Yields about three dozen.
Brigadeiros are Brazilian candies that owe their melt-in-your-mouth texture to sweetened condensed milk, cooked down until it’s thick and fudge-like. Though chocolate brigadeiros are the classic, pistachio is a tasty flavor variation.
Make Ahead Tips
Store brigadeiros in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to two days or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. (If refrigerating, bring to room temperature before serving for the best flavor and texture.)

This was an excellent new recipe for me to test. Making pistachio brigadeiros was quick and relatively easy. Very tasty and a good addition to the yearly cookie tin at Christmas. Thank you!
