Polvoron is one of the popular desserts in the Philippines. It is also one of our favorite childhood treat. Who does not want polvoron anyway? Whether a child or a child at heart, everyone would definitely love this crumbly, milky and buttery, melts-in-your-mouth special treat.

Original recipe of polvoron is composed of powdered milk, butter and flour added with sugar for a slight sweetness. Probably one of the classic ingredients that are added to it is pinipig (toasted glutinous rice). As of today, different ingredients are added to it like nuts (cashew, pili, etc.), cookies, chocolate, ube, to have different flavors that would fit the individual taste of polvoron fans out there. Perhaps the most common brand of polvoron among Filipinos is Goldilocks Special Polvoron. Another one is Sasmuan Special Polvoron from the Food Capital of the Philippines, Pampanga. So if you are craving for polvoron try their different polvoron variants.

But if you can’t find one, you can definitely make your own polvoron and it’s so quick and easy. I’m also craving for polvoron when I made this recipe. I made three variants: Classic Polvoron, Cookies and Cream, and Milo Polvoron. All of them have the exact sweetness that I want. It’s perfect as a low cost dessert. It’s milky, buttery and crumbly. If you are craving for polvoron right now try making this recipe. Tell me what you think.
