Polvoron is a Filipino dessert made with flour, powdered milk, sugar and butter. It is pressed in a special mold of different shapes and sizes and then wrapped in colorful plastic cellophanes. You can either make the classic polvoron or you can make flavored ones. Popular flavors include: chocolate, cookies and cream, pandan, peanut and pinipig or rice crispies. There are even chocolate-covered ones nowadays. I was thinking of making chocolate-covered polvoron but I thought it would be too hard and messy. Crumbled polvoron and drips of melted chocolate would break my heart.
1 cup flour, toasted
2 cup powdered milk
1 cup sugar
¾ cup melted butter
¼ cup oreo,crushed
- Combine all the ingredients and mix well.
- Use polvoron mold to shape it into round or oval.
- Wrap in cellophane or japanese paper.
- Don’t crush the oreo finely or its color would dominate your polvoron. You want the polvoron to look like the classic polvoron with specks of cookies.
