Liberian Milk Candy Recipe


Ingredients:
2 cans of condensed milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions:

In a large saucepan, over medium high heat the vegetable oil add condensed milk. Stir constantly until caramel reaches 248 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and cool, 15 minutes. Once mixture is cooled, take small scoops of the mixture and roll into balls. Smash your thumb into the middle of the ball to flatten or shape into desired form. Wrap candy in wax paper and store in a cool dry area. 


Tip: Add pecans, coconut or dried papayas for extra added flavor or serve the milk candy syrup over a bowl of vanilla ice cream, or as a dip for marshmallows or fruit.
