CARNATION® Milk Candy
This candy is popular throughout Latin America and has many variations. In Guatemala it's known as "Little Milk Legs." Carnation Evaporated Milk gives it an especially creamy, rich taste. Although it requires some time and patience to make, the results are well worth it!
- 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 small cinnamon stick
Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
REMOVE cinnamon stick. Stir vigorously periodically (it will lighten in color slightly) until mixture cools, thickens some more and can be handled. To speed the cooling process, hot mixture can be carefully divided into two bowls and stirred.
LINE baking sheet with wax paper. Use pastry bag with wide tip to form 2 to 3-inch long candies (legs). If pastry bag is not available, pieces of candy can be rolled with hands, dusted lightly with flour to prevent sticking. Allow to dry at room temperature. Store in tightly covered container. Makes approximately 24 to 30 candies.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I lived in Guatemala for a couple of years and now miss this treat terribly! I'm so glad to have found the recipe here and make it here in the comfort of our home! Thank you!!!!
My family just loved these! They came out perfect. I was a little concerned because of the length of time it needed to cook, but they were great!
Impossible to Make!
I've tried to make these, but I cannot, and it never gets gooey enough to roll or make 'legs' out of it. it takes a lot of your time, too
This reciepe was wonderful!!!! My children loved helping with this although they sampled more than made.
Very, Very Good
How delicious. We used the "star" tip to make little logs. Carnation Milk and Sugar...What could be better!
