Another Brazilian candy from Patricia’s Technicolor Kitchen: Beijinho. Like the brigadeiro I made a while ago they are delicious! That is if you like the very sweet and coconutty 😉 It easy to make but remember to keep stirring otherwise the milk will burn. I used smaller paper cups than last time but probably I made the balls about the same size as the brigadeiro because I only got 25 out of them….
Beijinho (from Technicolor Kitchen by Patricia)
makes 40 (or in my case 25 😉
1 can sweetened condensed milk (395g)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
5 tablespoons unsweetened desiccated coconut
Mix the condensed milk, butter and coconut in a saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly â€“ when the bottom of the pan starts to show and the mixture is a bit thicker, remove from heat and immediately pour the mixture onto a greased plate and let it cool completely before using. Lightly coat your hands with butter, grab small portions of candy and roll into 2 cm balls. Roll them in unsweetened desiccated coconut or granulated sugar and place in small fluted paper cups. Decorate each ball with a clove.
