Yema - Filipino Custard Candy

Just two more days to finish a month of long blogging marathon, you guys would have noticed since 2 september i have been posting different recipes under different themes with alphabets as starting letters.Today am posting with 'Y'as starting letter under International Cuisine as theme. Y letter have very much limited recipes and my choice went immediately to a Filipino custard candy. This candy is quite famous and its available in every markets and shops.

Actually this candy is prepared usually with condensed milk and egg yolk,but some may go for milk powder and omit the egg yolks, seriously with these simple ingredients this candy is ready to munch. Yema is a fantastic gooey filipino candies which gets ready in very less time and these bite sized custard are definitely an addictive snacks or desserts after a meal. This candy is one the popular dessert that many people from Philipines would have carried atleast once in their lunch box or when they visit  their friends and relatives. Obviously this yema is a fancy finger foods and you can make these candies with different variations like vanilla flavoured,coffee flavoured etc..However these Yema tastes like our kalakand for me.


1can Sweetened condensed milk
1tbsp Butter
2tbsp Milk powder or an egg yolk
Sugar (for coating)

Take the condensed milk in a heavy bottomed vessel, add in the milk powder or egg yolk if you are using.

Cook in simmer for few minutes, add the butter.

Continue stirring until the mixture turns thick.

Put off the heat and allow the mixture to cool.

Once the mixture is cool, roll it as small balls.

Roll it on the sugar and serve it in paper moulds or wrap it in cellophane paper.

You can also insert a tooth pick and serve this balls like lollies.
