Milk Candy Chews

Tired of gifting cookies every year? Try making Milk Candy Chews with Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk. Join Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk's Uncookie Exchange this holiday season! These are really yummy, unfussy sweets to make for this special event!

Milk Candy Chews are also known as Pastillas de Leche, which is a popular Filipino candy. It's a cross between taffy and a Tootsie!

You could package these up in really cute printed parchment papers, wax paper, colorful cellophane and even fill up cute, lil' Mason Jars tied-up with baker's twine!

Another fun thing you can do with the candy is mold them into fun shapes for cupcake and cake decorating. It's basically a more yummy tasting fondant!

Milk Candy Chews (Pastillas de Leche)


  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk, sifted

  • 1 can (14 ounces) Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ½ cup granulated sugar (you could use colored sugar as well)

*You could also add special candy flavorings like: banana extract, coconut extract, peppermint candy oil, strawberry candy oil, butterscotch

extract, maple extract, orange and much more! Just a 1/4 tsp or a drop would suffice!

*These candies can also be colored with gel paste food coloring.


  1. Place the condensed milk in a large mixing bowl or stand up-mixer. Add vanilla extract. Candy flavoring and food coloring should be added at this point.

  2. Gradually mix-in the powdered milk. The texture of the mixture will be similar to dough or fondant, once all of the powdered milk is completely added.

  3. Scoop some of the mixture and mold into your desired shape. For classic Pastillas de Leche, roll into a small cylinder shape.

  4. Roll each molded cylindrical mixture in granulated sugar. Colored sugar makes it fun and festive!

  5. Wrap each candy with wax paper, candy foils, parchment paper or cellophane.

  6. Package them up, serve and enjoy!
