YEMA Recipe

One of my favorite candies in my hometown is the custard candy made from egg yolks and condensed milk or most commonly known as “YEMA”. Basically, the ingredients are eggs and condensed milk mentioned earlier, also others like to include peanuts in the basic ingredients, for a different flavor. Everyone loves it toddlers to senior citizens, they find irresistible to eat this type of candy. Because it is sweet and chewy and just easy to snack on.

I remember during my youthful years while in Elementary I used to make this sweetie and sell it to my classmates to earn extra income and to have a good profit. However, that business never really lasted as I always ended eating up some of the profits because I cannot resist of not eating my own product. It’s funny to reminisce those years, sadly I failed.

And now, as I missed this sweet custard candy, I have the great chance to  make it as I please. And you really don’t need a fancy recipe for it as long as you know how and when it is done.

Beware, the more you let it sit on the heat, the harder it gets and you don’t want to miss your chance on rolling those custard candy into small bite pieces. However, it is my duty to share with you some recipes that I found online.


6 egg yolks
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 kilo white sugar

Preparation Instructions:

In a frying pan or pot, mix the egg yolks, condensed milk, and vanilla until well blended.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat to prevent the mixture from burning.
Using a metal spatula, stir the milk as if you are scraping the bottom of the pan. Stir constantly.
This must be done continuously to avoid burning the milk and to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
The mixture is ready when it forms a ball. Let it cool.
When cool, form the mixture into balls about 2 to 3 cm in diameter.
Place the yema balls on a wide plate with white sugar, then roll; once coated, pick up each ball with a toothpick. Set aside to cool.
When cool, wrap the balls in cellophane and twist both ends to secure.

Make sure to chill it first or best refrigerate it before eating.  And it will be a great sweet to nibble, especially if you are browsing online for  a MF's numark mixtrack pro 2 in stock
