Brigadeiro (bree-gah-de-roh - Portuguese for Brigadier). Brigadeiro is a delicious handcrafted chocolate bonbon that is very similar to chocolate truffles. They are a scrumptious and indulgent treat.
Legend says this popular chocolate was named in the 1940's after a Brazilian Air Force Brigadeir General named Eduardo Gomes. Apparently women thought that the Brigadier Gomes looked good enough, so they created a chocolate delicacy in his honor and named the candy after his military rank. (Brigadier) . The rest is history :)
