  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • cups melted butter
  • 2 cups sugar


  • In a pan, toast flour on moderate heat for about 15 minutes, or until light brown, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  • Remove the pan and transfer the mixture into a big bowl.
  • Add the powdered milk, and toss around for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Add sugar and melted butter. Mix well.
  • Fill the polvoron mold 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 can pick up the polvoron without it crumbling straight away.
  • Place the polvoron in an airtight container, then chill in the fridge until firm.
  • Carefully wrap the polvoron individually in Japanese paper or cellophane.
  • Keep the polvoron refrigerated until you want to eat them. You can store them in the fridge for about a week, or you can freeze them.
