Yema, also known as custard candy, is a very yummy healthy candy you can't resist to the last piece.
Yummy yema is so easy to make, a can of condensed milk and 12 egg yolks or less, depending on your preference, will do.
To make your own yema, just mix condensed milk and egg yolks in a sauce pan or a double boiler. Cook your yema mixture under medium to high heat, stirring continuously until the yema mixture coagulates and separates from the pan. Cool your cooked yema for about 30 minutes. Mold into bite-sized balls and roll yema on white sugar to coat, or shape into pyramids and wrap with colorful cellophane.
Tip: for a creamier yema, use full cream condensed milk like Milk Maid, as condensed filled milks tend to harden the yema because of its high-sugar, low-milk content.
So there you have it, yummy yema!
