Brigadeiro is a simple but delicious chocolate sweet the size of a truffle with the consistency similar to fudge. It has the distinction of being the most popular candy in the country of Brazil and is now appreciated internationally as well.
This popular chocolate treat was named after the Brazilian hero, Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes who also ran for Brazilian president in 1946. Legends report that Brigadeiro was a dark and handsome dashing bachelor, therefore a group of young ladies in Rio created this chocolate delicacy in his honor and named the candy after his military rank.
