Strawberry Cannabis Brigadeiros
If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying this Brazillian treat, then in you’re in luck my friends! Today we’re baking Strawberry Cannabis Brigadeiros.
So what exactly are Brigadeiros? (bre-gah-der-oh’s)
It’s a type or Brazilian chocolate confectionary that is to die for!
It’s a delicious bite-size little ball of tasty-ness, that’s not a truffle, fudge, caramel, brownie or anything else – it’s unique and oh-so-yummy!
From what we know, the Brigadeiro gets it’s name from the Presidential candidate named Eduardo Gomes who was an Air Force Brigadier.
While he didn’t win the Presidency, his famous sweets did!
The Tradition of Brigadeiros
Traditionally speaking, Brigadeiros are made for special occasions like baptisms, birthdays, weddings, and Valentine’s Day.

Today, we’re making the Brigadeiro’s normal flavor into an elevated Valentine’s Day sophistication with strawberries and cannabutter.
