Brigadeiro - Brasilian Truffle

Brigadeiro is a national truffle of Brasil served at almost all major celebrations. It is made of condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter and apparently, was invented after World War II when it was very hard to find sugar, fresh milk, dry fruit & nuts (often needed to make most  desserts). 

Another version says that Brigadeiro was created by brigadier Eduardo Gomez and served at one of his presidential campaigns events. 

We discovered that Brigadeiro pairs perfectly with Greenfield Jasmine Dream Tea and suggest you try it and let us know what you think!
