No-cook Caramel Pastillas

Prep Time20 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
Servings: 40 Pieces
Author: Lalaine Manalo


  • 1 can (14 ounces) dulce de leche
  • 2 ½ cups powdered full cream milk I used Nido
  • ½ cup dry roasted peanuts chopped
  • ½ cup sugar


  • White paper cut into 1-½ inch squares
  • colored Japanese paper cut into 2-inch squares


  • In a large bowl, combine dulce de leche, full cream milk and peanuts. With a spoon, stir together until well-combined. Refrigerate for about 10 to 15 minutes to firm up a bit for easier handling.
  • Divide mixture into about 40 portions and roll each portion into logs of about 1-inch long. Roll pastillas in sugar until fully coated.
  • Wrap each pastillas with a piece of white paper (resulting into a "tube") and then wrap with the colored Japanese paper. Insert the sides of the Japanese paper into the white paper "tube" to completely seal pastillas.
