How to Make Polvoron

Polvoron is a sweet snack made out of powdered milk.

It is considered as a native delicacy in the Philippines and is available in bakeshops and malls. Some even sell Polvoron coated in chocolate.

In this post we will teach how to make your own Polvoron. Try it, it’s fun!


2 cups of powdered milk
1 1/2 cup of butter
2 cups of sugar
4 cups of flour


Polvoron pressers
Japanese paper cut into squares

In a shallow pan, over medium heat, pour in your flour and stir until it is toasted or light brown.

Melt the butter in the microwave or in a saucepan.

Pour the flour in a bowl and add the 2 cups of powdered milk, 2 cups of sugar and 1 1/2 cup of butter. Mix it well.

Take your Polvoron pressers, these are available in department stores and cooking shops, and fill it with your mixture. Compact the mixture into the presser using a spoon, you don’t want your Polvoron to crumble easily.

Press the Polvoron down into your japanese paper. Wrap the Polvoron tightly but gently.

Since the ingredients in making Polvoron are relatively cheap, it is an excellent giveaway during Christmas – you can also make a business selling Polvoron!
