I'm so excited!  I just finished the stove portion of the Coconut Kisses.  I plan on taking them to the family dinner tomorrow (Thanksgiving).  FWIW I found the dehydrated coconut at the Whole Foods store.  You guys got me thinking...Almond Joys are soooo delicious, I wonder if sliced almonds or almond slivers would be good in place of the clove.  Even without the chocolate   Smiley

I messed up this recipe as well! Grin I doubled the butter for this (not the brigadeiros like i was supposed to). I just added more coconut and i think its a save. I have to eat them later today. I'll report back on how they turned out. I can't wait to try to make them again for my holiday parties in december!!

These were a hit. My 2 Brazilian friends said they were delicious. They recommended adding prunes in the center. Do you do that?

Po de queijo! I gotta try this when I go on vacation next week. I read another recipe that suggested boiling the liquid ingredients before adding the mandioca, then letting it cool before kneading in the rest. Do you know the reason they do that? I will probably try yours first because it sounds to fcil. Muito obrigada!

AHA!  I even found the right cheese for the bread! (Amigo Foods - online)  I was going to wait til Christmas, but my grandson's b-day is Sunday, so I might have to try the recipe then!

I'm not sure how many this recipe makes, because everyone kept eating them as soon as they were cool enough to touch.  I was trying to see if these would be good to take to a New Year's party I'm going to, and...

There's only one lonely one left sitting on the plate.  I made them about an hour ago.

Thanks for the recipe!  I like the pictures, but I do think that I cooked them a bit too long because they hardened up too much (at least I think so, but no one else did)...are they supposed to stay soft?  Mine stayed semi-soft, but developed an almost "crumbly" outer crust.  Everyone liked how they tasted like little cookies, but I feel like somehow I missed the point.  I'm not too worried, though, because I think that they were still a success.  I just learned a LOT from making them and now I know how to do it for next time  Cheesy

I coulden't find the right crystal sugar here (they were all out!), so could I roll them in maybe granulated or powdered sugar?

Also, I dont know why I dont see this lol...when do you add the coconut? Do you roll the balls in it or is it in the pot when your doing all the stirring?

Okay, so I just made these the other night.  I actually used a slightly different recipe I found on the internet, and used regular flaked coconut like you find in the baking aisle at US groceries, and they were quite tasty.  I don't know if they turned out correctly, because I've never had the "real thing."  Also, I refrigerated them to set, and they turned out quite... almost chewy?  But delightful. 

I'm definitely making more of these this week.  They went very quickly.  Thanks for the recipe!

You can roll it in any kind of sugar, just the granulated is the most usual - my kids don't like it at all, they say it's hard on their teeth.  Grin

THe coconut is part of the mix: condensed milk + coconut + butter = beijinho.

Merry Christmas!
