Pyramids of the Nile recipes for kids
This dessert is actually an easy version of a traditional Spanish sweet called pastillas de leche, or soft milk candy. To make Pyramids of the Nile, you will need the following ingredients:
2 cups sifted powdered milk
1 can condensed milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with 1/2 cup cornstarch for coating
To make the Pyramids of the Nile, simply mix the powdered milk and the condensed milk in a bowl. Mix well until you have a consistent mixture similar to dough. Allow the dough to settle for 5 to 10 minutes; if the weather is particularly hot, it might be better to let it sit in the fridge during that time. After 5 to 10 minutes, take it out of the fridge and pinch off a small portion. With clean hands, check if the dough could be easily rolled into a ball. If it is too sticky, you may need to add more powdered milk until you get the consistency that you need.
Once the dough can be easily manipulated, form small balls out of the dough. Use your fingers or the flat side of a spatula to transform the balls into the shape of the pyramids. Roll in the powdered sugar and cornstarch mixture to prevent it from sticking. Place on small paper liners or wrap in colourful food-grade cellophane.
