Pastillas de leche is a sweet milk candy that is usually served for dessert. The original recipe requires the use of Carabao’s (water buffalo) milk and cooking is necessary. However, using powdered milk is the best alternative for Carabao’s milk to save time and effort since it could be a no-cook quick and easy dessert recipe intended to satisfy your cravings right away. Thus cooking or heating the ingredients is not necessary, all you have to do is mix the ingredients together and in no time, you can have a sweet delicious milk candy for your dessert.
1 ½ cups full cream powdered milk
½ cup condensed milk
2 tbsp melted butter
white sugar, (for rolling)
cellophane paper (optional)
1. Sift powdered milk into condensed milk.
2. Add in melted butter. Mix and blend well.
3. Knead and set aside for 5 to 10 minutes before shaping into small balls or small cylinders.
4. Roll in sugar and wrap in cellophane if desired. However, if you don’t want it so sweet instead of using sugar roll it in powered milk. (Note: If you made it only for home consumption wrapping is not necessary.)
