How To Make Yema
Yema is the Spanish word for egg yolks. In the Philippines, it is the name for a candy made of egg yolks, condensed milk, and butter.
- Combine egg yolks and condensed milk. Mix well.
- Add chopped walnuts. Whisk until well blended.
- Melt butter in a cooking pot or pan. Pour the egg yolk mistuxe into the pan.
- Continue to cook until the consistency becomes very thick to the point that it can easily form a shape when molded.
- Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Let it cool down.
Cut the cellophane into 3x3-inch pieces. Scoop 1 tablespoons of mixture and place at the middle of the cellophane.
Wrap the yema while molding to form a pyramid shape piece (note: watch the video for details). Continue to wrap the yema until all the mixture are consumed.
