Beijinho Portuguese pronunciation: [bej'ʒĩɲu] ("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 that Beijinho was originally called "Nun's kiss" and formerly made with almonds, water and sugar.
