3. TinyB Chocolate’s Brigadeiros
TinyB Chocolate’s brigadeiros are a heavenly Brazilian cousin to the chocolate truffle, with a smooth, creamy texture but no hard shell. Brigadeiros have an interesting history. They were invented by Brazilian women in the mid-1940s as a product to sell to raise funds for the women’s rights-conscious presidential candidate—Brigadier Eduardo Gomes. They were the Brazilian MAGA hats or HOPE posters of their day! Brigadier Gomes didn’t win the election, but “brigadeiros” became a national tradition and are still made across Brazil to this day. Brigadeiros are a divine dessert that must be cooked during your holiday festivities.
