Last month, I received a beautiful box of brigadeiros from San Francisco-based company Tiny B Chocolate. I had no clue what brigadeiros were and had only just read a rave review from my friend Gluten-Free Mike a few days earlier. I learned from Tiny B Chocolates that brigadeiros are very rich, creamy chocolate truffle, the national dessert of Brazil, and a traditional Brazilian wedding treat.
TinyB owners Renata & Andrei set out to make the tastiest, highest-quality chocolate they could and it ended up being gluten-free. Score for us celiacs! I couldn't wait to dive into the beautiful box.
There are five tinyB classic flavors in every box (dark, milk, almond, pistachio & coconut) and other flavors can be purchased upon request. Some of the speciality flavors include Brazilian coffee and chocolate, raspberry and white chocolate, and spicy dark chocolate. Visit the tinyB flavors page for a complete list.
Each and every brigadeiro is such a decadent sweet treat. My favorites were the milk chocolate and dark & pistachio, while my boyfriend Victor loved the mint and dark chocolate. There wasn't a flavor we didn't enjoy. The tinyB treats can be kept at room temperature for 2 weeks. Honestly, I cannot imagine these lasting two weeks anywhere considering we devoured the entire box in less than two days!
Oh, and as if the box of chocolates aren't enough, you can also get a full spread of Tiny B brigadeiros for your wedding or special occasion. OH MY BRIGADEIRO, look at this spread!
These Tiny B Chocolates would make a wonderful treat for anyone whether they are gluten-free or not. With wedding and graduation season upon us, I highly suggest buying these treats for your favorite someone. I am so excited to offer my readers 20% off all orders using code GFfun. These handmade treats are a bit expensive but SO worth it!
Please note, Tiny B uses gluten-free ingredients and dedicated equipment that's not used for other purposes but the facility is not entirely gluten-free nor do they test their final product. I had no problems except for that they were gone way too fast!
NOTE: While the complimentary sample box was sent to me by Tiny B Chocolates, all opinions are my own and I only post about products I can say I truly enjoyed.
