  • Oil spray to cover mold (see notes)
  • 1 can of condensed milk (14 oz [405 gr])
  • 1/4 cup of sugar


  • Spray the mold (see notes) with the oil.
  • Heat condensed milk in a cast aluminum or iron 2 quart [2 lt] pot over medium-high heat.
  • Once the milk breaks the boil it will become thinner, this is normal, start stirring with a wire whisk to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
  • Once the milk has become thick enough to start lifting from the bottom (10 to 15 minutes) stir in sugar.
  • Continue whisking vigorously until it has become so thick that it sticks to the wire whisk (similar consistency to peanut butter.
  • Spoon into the mold and smooth out. Let it cool to room temperature.
  • Remove from the mold and cut into 6 squares.


I did not have a mold the size of the traditional Dominican one, I improvised by covered a cardboard box of similar size with aluminum foil and spraying with oil. The size I used was 3"L x 4 1/2"W x 2"H [6.75 cm L x 9.5 cm W x 4.5cm].
