Mom Tips

The amount of condensed milk is approximate.

For tall paçoquinhas, I used 2.5 cm diameter PVC pipe. Clean the pipe and cut it 4 cm in height. Fill the tubes with paçoca, pressing it well and then remove it from the mold.

The paçoquinha can also be made in a baking dish or by placing the dough inside cookie cutters.

Leave the paçoca in the fridge.

Approximate yield of 10 servings.
