Ah, beijinhos de coco… I mean, Brazilian Coconut Kisses… They taste like childhood — so sweet!!! Make these five-ingredient, quick coconut fudge balls — especially if you have children or grandchildren who are fans of the movie FROZEN.
Brazilian coconut kisses (beijinhos de coco — also known simply as beijinhos or branquinhos) are traditionally made from a mixture of sweetened condensed milk, coconut flakes, and butter (sometimes egg yolks). After briefly cooking, they are rolled into balls, dredged in coconut flakes or sugar, and decorated with a single clove on top.
Does this sound familiar? The process of making them is similar to the ever popular BRIGADEIROS!!!
Coconut kisses (beijinhos) are great to snack on, to serve at birthday parties and other events, and to give away as Christmas gifts. If your child is crazy for FROZEN, you gotta make these…
My daughter Hannah will be turning eight a few days from now. Although I was secretly rooting for her to choose RIO as the theme for her upcoming birthday party, she winded up choosing FROZEN… like many children do nowadays. 🙂 I think that these coconut kisses would be a great treat to serve at a FROZEN themed party. Don’t you agree that they look like SNOWBALLS?
I hope you enjoy these edible SNOWBALLS… I mean, BRAZILIAN COCONUT KISSES… and other FROZEN theme treats that I intend to share with you soon. You are invited to take a peek at my daughter’s party next week!
Enjoy your rest of summer… serving and eating these coconut kisses!
