Mrs. Lee’s Chocolate Sprinkle Balls

This recipe is in memory of my grandma’s nextdoor neighbor, Clarisse, who past away. She made these chocolate sprinkle balls every year around the holidays. They are so addicting, once you eat one you can’t stop! The texture is similar to fudge, but the outer layer of sprinkles make them easy to handle. These are a great dessert to have around during any time of the year for any occasion. Tip: Butter your fingers well when rounding to avoid a sticky mess!

Update: One of my readers was so kind to share that this is actually a Brazilian dessert, called brigadeiro. I am so happy I finally found the origin of these delicious chocolates!
