Talking about frugality, I used to sell these candy balls at school. Straight from high school to college I learned to become a small entrepreneur to support myself financially. I earned good money with these candies. I used my earnings to buy some snacks, fare and even school supplies.
Yield: 1 can makes 50-80 marble sized candy balls
1. When does one add the egg, and what are the instructions to that?
2. How did you price them? (How many for how much)?
3. How to store these and for how long?
4. Just out of curiosity, what was your career of pursuit after college?.
1. When you want it with egg, add one in every 300 mL can of condensed milk. Stir it into the milk just before placing it over the heat. Mix until well combined then you can start the cooking process.
2. In one can I can make 80-90 candy balls at Php 1.00 ($.02) each. The can of condensed milk costs Php 25.00 ($.49) so I can make about almost $2 out of every can.
3. In a cool dry place. Just like the ordinary candies it can last long without the egg.
4. a gov't employee and an entrepreneur at the same time...
I've not tried anything like this. Can't wait to :)
Instead of sugar, I dust them with milk flavoring powder (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, malted, Ovaltine, Horlicks, etc) or even fruit drink mix (KoolAid, Yang, etc) to prevent sticking. I may try other sesame powder as well.
