Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Weeks. As with most countries, Brazil is full of life and chocolate. It's a big country, and I found it easy to find several Brazil-inspired chocolates and confections.

Brigadeiros literally translates as brigadier. I'm not sure how the this term evolved from a military to a culinary one. But, today when someone offers you a Brigadeiro, say yes!

These sweet, soft, round confections are usually cooked with condensed milk and cocoa; and everyone seems to have their own creative variation.

Today's Super Cocoa Brigadeiro Truffle from Cabruca Chocolates (Winchester, OR) had a wonderful, sweet and creamy dark chocolate ganache (filling), and was rolled in crunchy cocoa nibs.
