In a medium pan, combine sweetened condensed milk and baking cocoa before you turn on the heat. Use a spatula to mix the ingredients together until the cocoa dissolves and the sweetened condensed milk looks brown.
Add the unsalted butter and the salt into the mixture.
Turn the stove onto medium high heat and place the pot over the flame, stirring continuously for about 15-20 minutes. You know that your Brigadeiros are done cooking when you can use your spatula to draw a line through the middle of the mixture and the mixture is too thick to mold itself back together.
Transfer the mixture to a cool bowl and allow to cool for about an hour and a half in the fridge.
Once cooled, break off portions of the mixture and roll into one inch balls in your hand. Roll the balls in your colored sprinkles and enjoy.
