Do you recall Brazilian coconut balls or Beijinho de coco? If so, you will find this recipe familiar, as it’s the same. They are made with butter, coconuts, and sweetened condensed milk. For those who haven’t tried Beijinho before, it is the coconut version of brigadeiro, a popular Brazilian dessert made with cocoa powder. Both are amazing and are always a crowd-favorite dessert on any occasion.
