I love all of Regina’s chocolate dessert ideas. They are flavorful and so much fun.  She has a knack for making them look festive too.  The truffles are bite sized and make the perfect snack.  I love the sugar crystals on the top.  They really add a delightful presentation.

Pumpkin Shaped Chocolate Truffles
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 25
  • Pumpkin Shaped Chocolate Truffles - Brigadeiro
  • Makes about 25 candies
  • 3 tbsp white chocolate powder
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • Food coloring (combine yellow & red to achieve the orange color)
  • Orange sugar crystals
  • Semi-sweet morsels to decorate
  1. Mix together the condensed milk, chocolate powder, butter, and food coloring in a saucepan over medium-low heat being sure to stir constantly until the mixture becomes thick and shiny, and starts to pull away from the bottom & sides of the pan.
  2. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture into a greased plate.
  3. Let the mixture cool completely before rolling it into small balls.Putting it in the fridge helps.
  4. When the mixture has cooled, rub some softened butter on your hands. Using a small spoon scoop out the chocolate mixture and roll it into small balls.
  5. Roll each ball in the sugar crystals and place them in paper candy cups. To make the pumpkin shape press the top gently, and with a slightly wet toothpick make creases all around it. Add a chocolate biton top of each candy to resemble the pumpkin stem.
