Polvoron Recipe

with Walnut


finished product- Polvoron

It's Christmas time! I remember when I was still back home I'd make Polvoron as my Christmas give aways for my officemates. I've missed doing it.

So when I was at a grocery store today, I grabbed a box of flour for my Polvoron making. I'm gonna make some tomorrow or the following day.

You will need:
  • 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • nuts: peanuts, cashew, etc (optional)
  • cocoa powder if you want it chocolatey (optional)
  • coffee powder  (optional)
  • oreo cookies for cookies n' cream flavor (optional)
  • Water cellophane (different colors)
  • Polvoron moulder
  1. On a pan, toast flour in a moderate heat for about 15 minutes, or until light brown, stir constantly to avoid burning.
  2. Remove the pan and transfer the mixture on a big bowl.
  3. Add the powdered milk, toss for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add sugar and melted butter. Mix well.
  5. Fill the mould with the mixture, press it hard by using a spoon, then release it, if it is still too loose, add more butter or olive oil. Make sure that you could pick up the polvoron without it crumbling straight away.
  6. Place the polvoron in a airtight container, chill in the fridge until firm.
  7. Carefully wrap the polvoron individually in water cellophane.
Keep refrigerated until you want to eat them. You can store them on the fridge for about a week, or you can freeze them.

You can make it as a business if you are a business minded person.
