Beijinhos (Little Kisses)

Beijinhos (Little Kisses)

This Brazilian specialty is a light treat just right for Valentine's Day. Makes about two dozen kisses.
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 ounces desiccated coconut, lightly toasted
  • About 2 dozen seedless green grapes, washed and dried

Place the condensed milk and butter in a heavy saucepan. Cook on low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened - about 25 minutes.

Pour the thickened mixture onto a lightly buttered plate, and cool completely. Meanwhile, toast the coconut and set aside.

To assemble, lightly butter your hands. Take about half a tablespoon of the cooled mixture and wrap a grape in it, rolling it between your hands until it becomes a small ball.

Toss the kisses in coconut and place on a plate or in small paper liners.

Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
