In American English, I don't think I've ever heard any chocolate called "black." We do use the term "dark chocolate," to refer to chocolate that has a higher cacao-to-oil ratio than "milk chocolate". Is that the same type of chocolate that's being called "black" here in Portuguese?
oh my! :) In the States we also have a different type of chocolate altogether, that we call "white chocolate" (it's the cacao butter and the milk solids but none of the brown cacao itself). Do you guys have that kind of chocolate in Brazil too, and if so, what is it called? (thanks for the help!)
I usually see "Chocolate amargo" for dark chocolate, "chocolate ao leite" for milk chocolate, and "chocolate branco" for white chocolate. There is also "chocolate meio amargo" when the concentration of cacao is higher than in milk chocolate, but not as high as in dark chocolate.
