I liked the part about grabbing a spoon and eating some.

 an aleternative method for preparing brigadeiro is to cook it in the microwave.
mix all ingredients in a microwave safe dish (a deep one is preferable) and cook it for about 7 min, stirring every couple of minutes or so... quick and easy :)
or you can cook it for half the time, and then use it as cake topping!

It's chocolate POWDER! And it doesn't go regular milk.

What exactly is Chocolate power? Is it powdered chocolate, or something exotic, that the shops in my country dont have? :)
