Flora, as a Brazilian I may assure you there s no way to translate these dishes into English, simply because they re typical food. Can you translate sushi, paella, pizza? You can t, because they re typical Japanese, Spanish and Italian food. Relax. When your students ask to translate these and also dishes as feijoada, po de queijo, buchada, etc, this is, in my opinion the best explanation.
To a non Brazilian person I d explain these are snacks usually used in parties, specially birthday parties and of course, explain how delicious they are and give some tips about how to cook them.

For everybody

The first one is called "brigadeiro". It s made with chocolate powder, condensed milk, butter, and chocolate crispies. (first invented in Brazil)

The second one is "empada"  a probably Portuguese dish, which could be explained as  a kind of "pot pie " with a bottom and top completely encased by flaky crusts and baked inside a pie tin to support its shape" (wikipedia)

And the last one is coxinha which (according to the legend) was first made in my hometown in Brazil - Limeira - SP. Princess Isabel had a mentally disabled kid who only wanted to eat chicken legs. As they were running out of them, the maids in a farm in Limeira (where the boy was sent to not to cause problems) came up with the brilliant idea of mixing together flour with  chicken broth, and filling that mixture with chicken before frying in hot oil.

Only now I m reading some answers (you were typing together with me). Nooooo! The first one looks like cup cake, but it s not a cake. There s no flour in it. Brigadeiro is not a cake. LOL

The second one could be one of the things you said, but generally it s a salty dish. It can be sweet, but it s not so common.

And , LOLROF, coxinha is not from Syria

The chocolate one is a truffle - you can get two types of truffles: those that you buy as a box of chocolates and those that you buy at the baker s.
