Hi aditijain-ga,

A literal translation is "my coconut sweet."  (Disclaimer: I do not
speak or read Portuguese, but have had experience on Google Answers in
translating non-English words and phrases.)

"The Attack of the Killer B.....s!," by Bruce Gilman [scroll about 2/3
down the page to "Pelados em Santos"/"Naked in Santos", first verse]
Brazzil Magazine

As you can see in that song, it has a figurative meaning -- something
like referring to one's "sweetie."  Another page compares it to the
expression in English, "honey pie."

"White Album (Beatles), Traduzido por Márcio Ribeiro (Creedance)"
[scroll about 2/3 down the page to "Honey Pie"/"Torta de Mel",

This glossary of cooking terms says that a docinho is comparable to a brioche cake:
