Brigadeiro refers to a popular delicious sweet/dessert which can be considered as Brazil's national dessert. Brigadeiros look like balls of chocolate similar to truffles. A thick mix of condensed milk, butter and chocolate powder is rolled into small balls and cooked. Once cooled, they are covered in chocolate sprinkles like a truffle. They are named after a Brigadier that helped stop a communist coup in Rio. Brigadeiros are usually served in every Brazilian birthday party and special occassions.
