Think of the these treats as Brazilian truffles – milky sweet confections you can make in minutes.

Combine milk, cocoa powder and butter in a saucepan. Cook over low heat 10-15 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick and forms a mass. Let it cool until you can handle it.

Place chocolate shavings or sprinkles in a flat tray and have paper cups ready. Using buttered hands, form marble-sized balls, roll in shavings and place in cups.

Store at room temperature.
