Chocolate Brazilian Coconut Kisses

image

We seem to be going through a South American phase in the kitchen just now and I’m not complaining!

I have made Brazilian coconut kisses or Beijinhos de coco before and they were lovely but I just wondered if a wee bit of chocolate might improve them even more.

Don’t ย be tempted to use regular chocolate, due to the sweetness of the condensed milk you need dark chocolate to balance it!

Makes 26-28. Do not store them in the fridge, you won’t be able to bit them!

Ingredients

395mls condensed milk

30g butter

100g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids

150g desiccated coconut

Method

In a heavy based pan, warm condensed milk and butter to just below simmering.

Stir continuously until the milk thickens to the point where you can draw a spoon through it and it doesn’t immediately run back in on itself. It will probably take 15-20 mins.

Add the chocolate and beat vigorously until the chocolate is completely melted and combined.

Add 100g coconut and beat to combine.

Set aside to cool.

Once cool enough to handle, pour the remaining 50g of coconut onto a plate.

Take small quantities of mix and roll into balls, around 2cm diameter.

Roll the balls in the coconut and then set aside, repeat with the remaining mixture.
