Let's Make Yema!

Anyone care to make yema? Yema is a type of custard candy made from egg yolks and condensed milk. It is a common dessert in the Philippines. I would say this is one of the easiest desserts to make.
3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk
3 egg yolks
3 tbsp peanuts, choppedCooking procedure:

1. Place the butter in a heated saucepan and allow to melt

2. Stir-in the condensed milk and allow to cook for 3 minutes

3. Add the egg yolks then continue stirring for 2 minutes

4. Set the heat to medium and put-in the chopped peanuts then stir until the mixture becomes thick (about 15 to 20 minutes). Adjust heat to low when texture is about to be achieved.

5. Turn-off the heat and allow the mixture to cool down

6. When the temperature of the mixture is tolerable, scoop a spoonful then roll with your hands to form a sphere (ball shape).

7. Transfer to a serving dish and apply your desired presentation

8. Serve. Share and Enjoy!
