The Beijinho de Coco

A popular brazilian dessert, the word “Beijinho” means "a little kiss". One of the secrets to please guests is to prepare for them an appealing sweet table; Brigadeiros, chigoe, cajuzinho and of course the Beijinhos would all play important parts on this table. Because these are definitely a favorite of adults and children alike, you can’t go wrong by offering the same amount of Brigadeiros and Beijinhos, you will probably need less of the other sweets, to avoid waste! Beijinhos are always a winner…

The Beijinhos do not necessarily need to be served in a paper cup: there are hundreds of fancy ways to serve these treats (spoons, mini ice cream cones, etc...); with these we can be creative.
