A hit with the kids, kisses are the kind of candy that even adults can’t resist!


  • 1 box or can of condensed milk

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or margarine

  • 100 grams of grated coconut

  • Grated coconut for rolling


  • In a pan add condensed milk, unsalted butter or margarine and grated coconut. 
    Take to the fire between medium and low and mix constantly until the candy easily disgraces from the bottom of the pan.
  • When unglued turn off the fire and transfer the candy to a plate. 
    Spread out well and let cool at room temperature, or cover with cling film and refrigerate until cold.
  • Take a little bit of the candy with a spoon and shape the kiss with your hands greased with butter or margarine. 
    Pass the sweetie in the grated coconut and repeat the whole process until you make all the kisses. 
    Arrange the kisses in paper cups and the candy is ready.
