Yema Balls Recipe. Yema Balls Recipe is a creamy, sweet custard candy and a famous Filipino sweet delicacy made with egg yolks and condensed milk. Yema Balls, is very easy to make and cheap. In this recipe I blend in some mashed potato to lessen the sweetness and yield more yema balls.


Yema Balls Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups condensed milk
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1/8 cup mashed potato
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup refine sugar, for coating

Yema Balls Procedure:

yema prep
  • Combine all ingredients all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over a medium heat.  Keep on stirring to avoid from burning until mixture thickens. Turn off the heat and transfer in a bowl, set aside and let cool. When yema is cool, spoon a teaspoon of mixture and make a ball using your palm. Roll each yema on a plate with sugar and shake off excess sugar.



Store in a plastic container or wrap in a 3×3 colored cellophane.
