  • 2 cups dry whole milk
  • 3 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 can (14oz) La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 55 – 60 cloves (optional but highly recommended)


  • Mix dry milk and confectioners sugar in a medium bowl, until combined. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir with a spatula until smooth and firm. You may need to knead by hand to achieve a smooth texture.
  • Using your hands, roll into balls. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  • Add a clove in the center of each papita de leche, if desired, and enjoy.


Store in a dry, sealed container like tupperware or a glass jar.
