Making Yema Balls

img_0.5375587919555731.jpg

Yema is Philippine's soft candy made from egg yolk and condense milk. Its name is derived from the Spanish word for "egg yolk."

Growing up, I fondly remember that our house helpers made homemade yema for us. This pandemic, the beautiful memory of yema making crossed my mind. And I want my little one to experience my childhood experience too. Thus, we made our very own Filipino candies at home!

It's an easy peasy recipe, anyone can do! Here's how:

Ingredients

7 pieces egg yolks
1 can condensed milk (14 oz.)
3 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons chopped peanuts
White sugar, to coat

  • Melt butter in a cooking pan. Pour the egg yolk mixture into it.

  • In a low fire, continue to stir until the consistency becomes very thick.

  • Let it cool down.

My little one enjoyed rolling the yema balls into the white sugar for coating. He enjoyed his role. And sometimes took some bites in between work! Hahaha!

It's all a sublimely beautiful Sunday to be able to cook some yummy treat with my kid! Hope you have a terrific Sunday as well.
