Coconut Beijinhos

These simple but delicious truffles are a Brazilian delicacy, literally named coconut ‘little kisses’ or, in portuguese, beijinhos.



  • 1 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut + 1 cup for garnish
  • 4 Egg Yolks


  1. In a pot, mix the condensed milk with the grated coconut; add the egg yolks.
  2. Boil without stopping mixing. When the bottom of the pot is visible, the mixture is ready.
  3. Let cool, make little balls and cover with powdered sugar or grated coconut.
