Pastillas de leche, a Filipino milk candy is one of the quickest, easiest, no-cook treats I know how to make!

Simply empty 1 x 395 gram can of (full fat) condensed milk into a large bowl and sift over 2.5-3 cups of milk powder (until you reach a nice dough consistency). If you add too much milk powder by accident, add water 1 tsp at a time until you get back to the consistency that you want. You’re looking for a play-dough type feel. Roll into balls and dip into white sugar and you’re done! If you want to get even more fancy, add a few drops of flavouring/colouring to the condensed milk prior to adding the powder and mix thoroughly to combine. You could use citrus or berry oils, or if you want to stay on the South East Asian side of things, stick to pandan, ube or durian essences. Happy rolling!
