Our small family business is based in Norwich – Norfolk UK. At the moment we don’t have a physical store. Our operations are homemade, our store is online and we ship all UK.
The brigadeiro (Portuguese pronunciation: [bɾiga’dejɾu]) is the national truffle of Brazil and a traditional Brazilian dessert. It is originally a homemade sweet and its ingredients are condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter and chocolate sprinkles to cover as a topping.
The brigadeiro is usually molded into small balls covered with chocolate sprinkles and placed in a small cupcake liner. The brigadeiro chocolate can also be poured into a jar ( spread) and eaten with a spoon, and this is known as a spoon brigadeiro (literally, “spoon brigadeiro”). There is a variation of flavours nowadays, which makes our beloved brigadeiro even more attractive. There is also a tendency to manipulate them and combine them with different recipes, such as cakes, pies, ice cream, bread, etc.
We made our chocolates with the real and pure finest Callebaut chocolate, high quality and fresh material and also we use ingredients from local suppliers supporting the local community. Each Brigadeiro has a unique flavour to match with the perfect percentage of cocoa.
Our chocolates are made by hand, rolled up one by one and their size can vary depending on the topping we use to cover them, but basically each one is about 18gr to 20gr (one to two bites).
We recommend refrigerating the brigadeiros in the fridge due to the presence of dairy products in the recipe and to maintain the smooth texture. Properly store up to 7 days in a closed container in the fridge, but you can enjoy them and serve at room temperature (around 17ºC / 21ºC).
Keep them refrigerated and protect them in a closed container. Another option is inside a grip seal bag, keeping maximum air and moisture out of the package, so your Brigadeiros remain fresh.
We at Emporium Norwich love to enjoy them cold!
Yes, it is possible to freeze the chocolate brigadeiro. Pack properly and keep maximum air and moisture out of the package.

We try our best to avoid any cross contamination. Our brigadeiros are naturally eggs and peanuts free, we don’t use these ingredients in our recipe, but we have eggs and peanuts in the same kitchen where we produce our chocolates.
Our brigadeiros have dairy in their composition, any person with restrictions should NOT consume our regular brigadeiros.
Nuts are not part of all of our recipes and we do our best to avoid any cross contamination. All of our flavours are made in a home kitchen that is exposed to nuts and some of our products contain Pistachios, Walnut and Roasted Peanuts. So, there may be traces of nuts in any of our products.
All of our products are made in a home kitchen, exposed to gluten and some of our products contain gluten as a Brigadeiro Cone, Brigadeiro Cookie, Brigadeiro Biscuits and some of our toppings (decorations/sprinkles) that cover the Brigadeiro chocolate. Gluten/Flour are not part of all of our recipes, but there may be traces of gluten in any of our products.
