  1. Bring milk and butter to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the milk has reduced to half and thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the 1/4 cup coconut, and allow to cool a bit before pouring into a buttered bowl. Chill in the refrigerator until cold, about 2 hours.
  2. With buttered or oiled hands, form milk mixture into tablespoon-sized balls, and roll in coconut flakes. Stick a clove into each beijinho as decoration.

I love this! It is the most requested treat at parties, along with brigadeiros. Great recipe!

This recipe brings me good memories from when i was a child growing up in Brazil. A must have in birthday parties for kids!

very good but need to cook over low for a lot longer to get right consistency.

Delicious! Goes well with a dash of choc syrup on the side. Be careful not to burn the milk!!!
