Pastillas de Leche if directly translated from Spanish means “milk tablets” or “milk pills” which basically describes this Filipino sweet delicacy. This is made from evaporated milk with some mixtures to make it like a dough. The dough will be formed into small shape and be coated with sugar. 

This can't be usually found in other countries and to taste Philippines sweet delicacy at your place, I made this step by step instructable. 

This recipe can produce 50 small pieces, but number can vary in size.

Step 1: Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/3 cup Milk powder
  • 1 can condensed Milk
  • few drops of Vanilla Extract
  • Sugar
  • Butter
* note: if making more just make this as the ratio.

Materials to use:
  • wooden stick
  • cooking pan(try not using tefal)
  • plates
  • mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Knife
  • Chopping Board
  • Container (For sugar)
Most important thing needed
There are Peruvians in my family that make cookies with a similar setup. One trick they use is to boil the whole can of evaporated milk while it's still sealed. Usually they'll boil two and store one for next time. They just remove the wrapper from the can and boil the sealed cans for 3 to 4 hours.
<p>Hi it sounds interesting but wont the can explode due to expansion? </p>
<p>We've never had that happen. I don't think there's anything in there that should expand, very much. Usually cans are boiled for a short period of time during the canning process of most food, anyways. It looks like someone else has made an instructable about the process, too. </p><p>https://www.instructables.com/id/Dulce-de-Leche/</p>
how many weeks or months can this last? Does it require any preservatives to last long say like 3 months?<br><br>Chinny
The can can definitely explode if the pot boils dry. So just keep topping up the water and it's safe.
Nope. Boiling cans is often part of the canning process.

Well we Filipinos didn't tried cocoa yet. Tell us what it taste like when you've tried it, ok? :)
<p>Where do you add in the butter and how much butter must it be?</p>
Add the butter to a bowl when you're going to transfer it or to cool down the pastillas
