Beijinho ("Little kiss" in Portuguese), also known as branquinho ("little white one"), is a typical Brazilian birthday party candy prepared with condensed milk, grated desiccated coconut, rolled over caster sugar or grated coconut and topped with a clove.

Beijinho is the coconut version of the Brazilian brigadeiro. When rolled, it can be covered with granulated sugar or grated coconut. Traditionally a single clove is stuck in the top of the candy.

It is believed[1] that Beijinho was originally called "Nun's kiss" and formerly made with almonds, water and sugar.

It is a little cake that. Is very common in Brazil.
