    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      1.Place eggs, milk, sugar, and pinch of salt into a pot and mix well with a whisk.
    2. 2
      2.Bring to a boil, and cook at a low simmer. The eggs will separate and the mixture will look curdled, but continue to cook, stirring gently with a wooden spoon.
    3. 3
      3.Cook for 20 to 25 minutes more, until the liquid has almost completely boiled away. At this point it is necessary to stir continuously.
    4. 4
      4.Cook until the mixture is very thick, and no liquid remains. It should be the consistency of a sticky playdough.
    5. 5
      5.Remove from heat and place candy in the bowl of a mixer. Add the vanilla and almond flavoring.
    6. 6
      6.Using the paddle attachment, beat dough until it cools. It will stiffen and become less sticky. If dough remains sticky, knead some sifted powdered sugar into the dough.
    7. 7
      7.Refrigerate overnight. Maná will keep for 2 to 4 weeks in the refrigerator, wrapped in plastic. It also freezes well.
    8. 8
      Serving Tips: There are many ways to serve maná. The simplest is to shape it into bite-size balls and roll them in chopped nuts or powdered sugar. Or tint the maná with food coloring and shape into assorted fruits. I like to use it to make little carrots to decorate carrot cake. To use maná as a cake covering, like rolled fondant, sprinkle the counter with powdered sugar and roll it out just as you would roll out fondant or marzipan.
