Brigadeiros or Beijinho de coco

So I was thinking today of my days in Miami and I remember when I used to work for a Brazilian company and the owner introduce me to this little sweet shop in coconut groove. They used to serve this little balls made out of chocolate or coconut so I decided to look and see how easy they were to make or if I could even be able to make them.  

Wallah to my surprise is super easy to make them.  I did not know that but apparently they are very famous in Brazil in children parties..so I guess I will be serving this in my next birthday party. Even to my surprise Samia was able to help me that is how easy they are.

This the last result, I added some pink and purple sugar and of course some with coconut.

AS you can see the ingredients are 

Can of condense milk
1 tablespoon of Butter
1/4 cup of coconut flakes.

Take the condense milk and the butter and put it in the stove in medium low for about 20 minutes, till you can see that is getting thick.

Once thick put aside and add the coconut.

Then take a plate and put some butter around it and add the mixture put in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Afterwards take some butter put in your hands and start making little balls and then pass them either to color sugar, coconut pretty much anything you like.

Afterwards put again in the refrigerator for a little while and then they are ready to be eaten...

And here is Amir I love this face his sisters were in top of him singing and talking none stop his face is like what the heck is going on crazy girls...yes nene get ready for those two they have so much energy..but they love you so much already I think at times they wish you were big so they can rough you up.

The sweets look very tempting.. I will do it for a party and see what others think about it.. is it Brazillian sweets then? And when you put the butter the milk will thicken? No need flour or anything else? thanks for sharing.
