Today's Banana-Walnut Brigadeiro Truffles were the last in a series of Brazil-inspired chocolates from Cabruca Chocolates (Winchester, OR).
Juliana Bounds, who grew up in Brazil, created this piece that she described as a: "Dark chocolate with caramelized bananas, cinnamon and walnut-cocoa pralines; Sprinkled with cinnamon sugar."
The walnut and banana flavors were subtle, and the hint of cinnamon created a slight warmth. I feel I have a much better understanding of Brigadeiro chocolates after working my way through this dark chocolate assortment this week. Thank you Juliana!
Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Weeks.
