Pastillas de Leche is a milk candy, of course it is made of leche or milk. We love pastillas de leche but this milk candy is not cheap if you buy this in pasalubong store so even I like this, I seldom buy this milk candy.
Yesterday, I made Pastillas de Leche after tutoring my son. I have skim milk that I haven’t used and it’s in the fridge for so long so bago mag-expire, gamitin na. I bought this because I wanted to make polvoron but I realized pastillas de leche is much easier because I don’t need to cook.
Yes, I’m so lazy. Lol The nice thing about No Cook Pastillas de Leche recipe is, you only need 3 ingredients.
3 cups of skim milk (powdered milk)
1 can of condensed milk (300ml)
1/2 cup sugar
All you need to do is mix the powdered milk and condensed milk. I pour the powdered milk per cup so I can mix it well. I thought mixing would not be a problem pero need mo rin ng effort because it is super sticky.
After mixing, you can already form balls or tube but I decided to chill the milk mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes. But I almost forgot about it so, mga 45 minutes siya nasa fridge so when I was forming balls, matigas na siya. Lol!
But still I was able to form balls and my son helped me in making pastillas. He is in charge of rolling the pastillas in the sugar.
This is a good bonding with your kids, you just need to practice self-control while shaping and rolling pastillas because you can’t help but eat the pastillas. Store it in a container or put it in sandwich bag for baon.
