Yema Candy for a Sprinkle Bakes Giveaway!

February 27, 2013

This is looooooong overdue.  I mean like 6 months overdue!  I have been planning this giveaway for months, but pregnancy and baby got in the way.  But finally things have cleared up and I have an amazing giveaway!

Sprinkle Bakes is one of my very favorite bloggers!  I am obsessed with everything Heather makes.  Each and every item is perfectly beautiful.  Her pieces aren’t just any normal dessert, they are works of art.  Her book has 200+ pages of awe-insipiring desserts.  She outlines basics like Chocolate Cake and American Buttercream and showcases recipes such Candy Nesting Bowls and Homemade Fondant and Modeling Chocolate.  Heather goes into incredible detail to make her extravagant recipes look easy.  
When deciding which recipe to make from Sprinkle Bakes, these Yema Candy really stood out to me.  They looked so delicate and soft, and {most important!} easy.  Turns out they were all that and more.
Lucky for you, Sprinkle Bakes is giving away a copy of her book!  
To enter the giveaway, all you need is do is head on over to Sprinkle Bakes blog and choose your favorite recipe of hers.  Leave a comment below stating what you choose.  
For an additional entry, follow me on twitter {@KrissyCreations} and tweet and about this giveaway.  Be sure to leave an additional comment stating that you did so.  
The giveaway ends on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 at 11:59pm PST.  The winner will be announced next week.
Good luck!

Yema Candy
1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
1 can (14-ounces) Sweetened Condensed Milk
5 Egg Yolks
Pistachios, Finely chopped, For Decoration
Yellow Sanding Sugar
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan.  Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and heat for 1 minute.  Add the egg yolks and stir to combine.  Continue stirring until a thick paste forms and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.  Remove the pan from heat and transfer the mixture to a bowl; cool completely.
Once cooled, roll the candy in 1½-inch balls and then roll into the yellow sanding sugar to coat completely.  To make it easier to roll, lightly butter your hands before rolling the candy.  Top with crushed pistachios.
