My First Perfect Yema

When I was in elementary and high school, I spend half of my daily allowance just to buy this sweet slimy thing hehehe.... I have been trying to make a perfect Yema since then but I cannot come up with the right color, right texture and right softness. After how many years, FINALLY! hahaha I made one! My first ever Perfect Yema!!! Thanks to me for experimenting hehehe. I still have to improve it but for now this one is the best! I'll share to you my super simple recipe for beginners only hahahaha and for professionals 'never laugh at me because you were once an ignorant too hehehe'.

My Ingredients:
~1 can of condensed milk (any brand will do)
~2 egg yolks (you can make it 3, 4... whatever you want just experiment too haha)
~37.5grams cornstarch (I think flour will do, I will try it next time. It's up to you how many grams you will put just experiment but for me I used half of the 75g cornstarch that I bought in the grocery store)
~3 tbsp olive oil (any oil will do as long as healthy ^_^ if your oil is not healthy make it 2tbps haha)
~little sugar (hehehe it's up to you really!)
~1 cup of love on what you are doing 

How To:

Mix well all the ingredients in a bowl.
Preheat frying pan and then put the mixture and stir constantly.
The mixture is ready when the color is brownish and can form balls.
Prepare a plate and cover it with Choice Cling Wrap (cheapest microwavable plastic) so that it would be easy for you to get and make cute balls then put the mixture there. Don't worry the mixture will be fine with cling wrap just let it cool first before you start making balls out of it. 
P.S. you can also put little peanut I ate some with that too.
Happy Making!!!

Roll it in the sugar if you want and for better and yummy appearance!
The serving will depends on the size of your balls.
This is the easiest delicacy I've made hahaha... I gave some to my nephew and cousins, to my mother-in-law. My hubby and his beer mate ate the rest. They all said it's delicious. See??? Not bad for beginners huh!

I will also try this other Yema recipe which I found over the internet:

6 egg yolks
1 (396 g) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
200g sugar
Different coloured cellophane paper, cut into 10x10cm squares for wrapping
Procedure in making yema
1. In a large pot, mix the egg yolks, condensed milk and vanilla until well blended.
2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat to prevent the mixture from burning. Stir constantly.
3. The mixture is ready when it forms a ball. Let cool. When cooled, form the mixture into balls about 2 to 3 cm in diameter.
4. In a small pot, caramelize the sugar over low heat until it is all melted.
5. Drop the balls one by one into the pot and coat completely with the caramel. Once coated, pick up each ball with a toothpick. Set aside to cool.
6. When cooled, wrap the balls in cellophane and twist both ends to secure.
