Carrot Yema Balls

Last month, I attended one of my friend's birthday party. She knows most of us have a bit of a sweet tooth so she prepared something new this time. She usually just buys ice cream. She calls this carrot yema balls. I so love yema when I was still a kid. I know I should eat right but when my sweet tooth starts calling, I can't seem to ignore it ;) So I asked for her recipe and here it is:


1 cup carrots, boiled and mashed
1 301 ml condensed milk
6 pieces egg yolks
1/4 cup macapuno in syrup
1/3 cup crushed cornflakes
2 tbsp butter or margarine
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tbsp chopped peanuts
1 cup white sugar

  1. In a pan, combine all ingredients except the white sugar.
  2. Cook mixture over low heat while stirring until thick enough to hold its shape. Cool.
  3. Form 2 tsp of mixture into balls and roll in sugar. Wrap in colored paper or cellophane.
Yum! yum!

**I just found out she got this recipe from nestle website lol!
