Brigadeirao (Brazilian Chocolate Fudge Flan)
Brigadeirao is an easy family-size chocolate fudge flan made in the blender and baked in 40 minutes. It's decadent, fudgy, and addictive!!!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
28 oz sweetened condensed milk (or two 14-oz cans)
1 cup whole milk
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 large eggs at room temperature
1/4 cup chocolate sprinkles good quality
Preheat the oven to 350º F (180º C). Grease a 8-inch (20 cm) ring pan with butter or no stick cooking spray. Sprinkle sugar all over. Set aside.
Blend all ingredients (except the sprinkles.) in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in a bain-Marie for about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven, run a knife the edge around carefully, and place on a rack to cool.
Cover and refrigerate for about at least 4 hours, or until chilled and set. Run a knife around again and invert onto a plate. You may have to tap bottom of the pan to encourage unmolding.
Serve with chocolate sprinkles on top. If desired, drizzle chocolate fudge on the edges.
BAIN-MARIE: Place hot water in a large baking pan and place ring pan inside. Make sure water comes halfway up the side of the pan.
Store brigadeirao covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Do not freeze! Why? This is a large flan and most flans don't freeze well. But if you'd like to give it a try (at your own risk):
Adjust your freezer to 0 degrees F and cut cool brigadeirao into quarters.
Then, wrap in freezer plastic bags for storing up to 1 month.
Thaw in the fridge and serve.
Serve brigadeirao all year round. It makes a great dessert for potlucks, get-togethers, or Sunday meals, as well as for Easter and Christmas, depending on how you decorate it.
