Pastillas are a famous Filipino sweet treat. It is commonly made with fresh milk or powdered milk. Birch Tree is a Filipino brand of powdered milk that offers both full cream milk powder and fortified milk. Recently, Birch Tree launched a new fortified chocolate flavor that is widely available in grocery stores and supermarkets. Intrigued, I bought a small pack and tried making chocolate pastillas with it. Allow me to share my recipe. Basically, it's a chocolate version of a famous Filipino sweet treat typically made with fresh milk.
