Polvoron (Pulboron) is a classic Filipino delicacy made with powdered milk, flour, and melted fat wrapped in colorful cellophane or Japanese paper. It is often referred to as milk candy and is a popular snack or pasulubong in the Philippines. Believe it or not, selling this candy has become one of the main sources of income for many kababayans. In light of this, if you want an extra income, you could try and sell this delicious candy in your neighborhood. This dessert has many flavors such as, peanut butter, chocolate, ube, pinipig, nuts and more. In this recipe, we use only a basic ingredients but feel free to experiment and add more flavor if you wish. If you want chocolate flavor or cookies and cream flavor in this, add some milo chocolate powder or crushed oreo cookies plus additional butter.
To achieve the perfect oval shape, it is best to use a polvoron molder. This is often available in larger supermarkets and is available in different sizes. Or, if you’re outside the country, there is nothing wrong with improvising and making your own molder as long as you can mold and shape it in a similar way. No need to go and buy Polvoron at Goldilocks. Save your time and money and make it at home. It is easy and fun to make.
