Introduction: How to Make Polvoron(philippine Powderd Milk Candy)

About: Interested in different things i could possibly make.

People now a days are looking for recipes as good as Goldilocks

now i have made a recipe that tastes like goldilocks...

Step 1: Ingredients:

1cup flour
1/2 or 1/4 cup butter or margarine(butter is better)i used 1/4 it didnt go well, actually it is according to your mixture
1/2 sugar
2/3 or 1/2 cup milk(I suggest using Nido Fortified)

if making more just make this as the ratio.

materials to use:
wooden stick
cooking pan(try not using tefal)
molder(you could make more if you use the oblong shape)
mixing bowl

Most important thing needed

Step 2: Toasting Flour

First strain the flour to make the flour soft with no big objects then

put the flour in to the pan and toast till light brown. Do not leave it alone toasting on open fire.

Note: if the flour is very brown it wont taste good, the final product ill taste like burned bread or such..

Step 3: Cool Down

Step 4: After Cool Down

When it is not that hot anymore put in the powdered milk

then mix....mix....mix.... till both is mixed together

Step 5: Melting the Butter

Skip this step if you have melted the butter at the first step.

if not, melt it!!

Step 6: Mixing the Sugar

put the sugar in to the flour and milk mixture and just mix it as usual.

Step 7: Melted Butter

put the melted butter in to the mixture and


Note: make sure there will be no hard parts or that would mean that you didnt mix it well..

Step 8: Then Last: Mold the Overall Mixture

just use the molder  to form the desired shape

if you want the quality of Goldilocks use the oblong shaped molder.

Step 9: Refrigiate

make it cool so that the powder wont collapse.. let the butter harden in the refrigirator

Step 10: Thank You for Reading This Instructables!

Goldilocks is the name of a Filipino food establishment. It is widespread here in the Philippines. They sell Polvoron as well.


Question 5 months ago

you used the amount of ingredients to make 13 polvorons?

Thanks fo the ingredient it's for my school and my families thank you:):)

If I use 1/2 cup of butter, do you recommend 2/3 cup of milk or 1/2 cup of milk?

1 reply

The butter is to harden it not to change too much of the taste. So i wound say 1/2 milk..

A wonderful recipe. The closest to my grandmother's Scottish shortbread I have found. Perfect for a warm climate with no oven. I agree butter is better than margarine. I just substitute the Nestle's product as I do not buy anything Nestles. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Just one more thing. I am researching making a solar oven. No electricity or gas use at all. use when the sun is out. they work for so much. The answer to so much baking.

thank you:)
you've been a big help to me.

Sounds very interesting .... something to try. I have never heard of this sweet before.
