    Yummy-licious milk candy treat that my little girl love !


    • 1 liter of pure carabao’s milk (substitutes: cow’s or goat’s milk)
    • 3/4 cup sugar (1/2 cup sugar if cow’s or goat’s milk is used)
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


    1. Pour one liter of fresh, pure carabao’s milk into a pan and add in the sugar.
    2. Add 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch into the mixture, stirring constantly and making sure everything is well-set.
    3. Put the pan over medium heat. Stir slowly and continuously until the mixture of milk and sugar thickens a bit. Once the mixture is thick, lower the heat.
    4. Over low heat, continue stirring the gooey milk mixture until it forms into a mass that can be lifted off from the pan with the ladle.
    5. Put the mass of pastillas into a bowl. Let it cool.
    6. While waiting for the mixture to cool, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cooked cornstarch on a board. Set aside.
    7. Once cool, get a small lump of pastillas then roll it onto a board, making long logs of milk candies.
    8. Trim the logs of milk candies into desired length or size.
    9. Sprinkle with a little sugar to prevent the candies from sticking to each other before putting them into a tight lid jar.
    10. If you llike them wrapped, cut out pieces of bond and Japanese paper.
    11. Place each piece of pastillas into Japanese paper. Then, wrap each of them further into bond paper.
