These coconut candies are popular in Brazil and I highly recommend them. They are absolutely delicious. If you like coconut as much as I do, you may eat a dozen or so of these Beijinhos de Coco.
They are easy and simple to make and have amazing flavor!
(Makes about 12)
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons coconut milk
2 tablespoons butter, plus more for your hands
1/2 cup coconut flakes, plus more for decoration
1. Place all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan over low heat and cook for about 12 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
2. Pour the mixture on a greased baking pan. Let it cool for at least 1 hour.
3. With buttered hands, make equal size small balls with the mixture. Roll each beijinho in the coconut flakes.
4. Place in baking paper cups and store in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
