Oh! So that's what polvoron is! I had a "polvoron" in San Sebastian and had no idea what it was (http://gastronomyblog.com/2010/06/04/akelarre-san-sebastian/)

Marvin - wow, you just took me back. My mom had a store for a time (vaguely named Food and Gifts International). She sold batik tablecloths, jewelry, canned lychees and shell 'paintings,' among other things. AND, she made polveron with those spring-loaded thingamabobs! There is nothing quite like the texture of polveron. There's also no chance she kept those molds...

Put me down as one Pinay who LOVES polvoron! Unfortunately, I'm so impatient to eat it that I simply can't take the time to make it myself (attempts are likely to end with me simply spooning the mixture directly into my mouth). Baby Lumpia is adorable!

I am so excited to see this! I love polvoron (and have a few bags from the asian market...) It's been years since I made (well, someone made, and I watched--that was probably when I was a kid) polvoron! I will be trying this out sometime! If I can find my polvoron molds!

hi marvin!
yeah! cobra kai! mercy is for the weak!

very cool post! polvoron is one of my fave candies! the plain is always the best, although the flavored ones (ube, jackfruit, cookies and creme) are also pretty good.

one of the nicest gifts i ever got was a batch of homemade polvoron from one of my students (made by his mom). i think i'll be trying this recipe out pretty soon - seems easy enough!

Aww. He's adorable!

I wonder how it tastes when it's fresh. Yours looks tasty. The first time I had polvoron when I was a kid, it was so sweet I thought my eyes would explode and I never had it again. The times I'd have it when I'd visit my parents as an adult, I couldn't tell if it was old and dry or just right. It just wasn't my thing. Then I tried some ube-flavored polvoron, and while the texture was still plenty . . . um . . . gncakkky (for lack of a better word--it just sticks to the roof of my mouth until it rolls off), the flavor and texture were somehow addictive.

ALSO, dude, Baby Lumpia is a cutie!!

I think you're a funny guy. Why burnt Lumpia anyway? As for the polvoron, I think it is one classic dessert. Ang sarap talaga niyan lalo na kung malinamnam kasi butter talaga yung ginamit. Polvoron making used to be a magpi-pinsan event. My lolo makes the mixture and the apos shape the candy with the mold. I hope you'll be able to visit my blog, too! www.anneandfood.blogspot.com

Where did you go trick or treating?

My mom used to make polvoron. One time we accidentally burnt the flour - it was brown but the polvoron still turned out to be edible. In fact, some people said it had a unique taste.

My mom brought some back from the Philippines from a place called "House of Polvoron". It was sooo good..I was hoarding it because I knew once it was all gone it would be a really long time before I could get more. I will try your recipe and see if it will hold me over until I can get more from the PI..

It looks great. He is adorable.

thanks for sharing this. .I would love to do polvoron all by myself! I want to surprise my mum..

*LOL* I never thought I'd see William Zabka connected to a post about polvoron. Whodda thunk it?!?! Only you, Marvin. I love it.
BL is sooo adorable as a little Cobra Kai.

Thank you for this! I was always a little hesitant to try and make it myself, but you explained it simply and clearly!

I totally thought you were going to say you dressed baby lumpia up as a piece of polvoron. Haha.

Marvin, did you oil the shot glass before you packed in the polvoron?
Baby Lumpia is looking adorable in his black and whites. I hope he enjoyed his first polvoron.

I used to help my Lola make polvoron when I was a kid. It is actually the only Filipino candy I'll eat cause I can't stand the goat's milk candy. I never knew it was this easy to make. Thanks! I'll definitely try it.

Baby Lumpia is so guapo!!!

Hey Gastronomer! That artichoke and almond polveron you had sounds awesome.

Hi Janet. Yes, those spring-loaded thingamabobs are the best thing for molding polveron.

Tangled, I usually just untwist one end of the polveron and pour it into my mouth:)

Just use a shot glass stacey!

Caninecologne, sweep the leg!

Thanks WC:)

Fresh polveron is very tasty, Julie. It's all buttery and warm!

Thanks for stopping by, Anne.

Hi PinoyLifestyle. Yeah, you have to keep an eye on that flour before it burns.

Hello JBW. I've heard good things about House of Polvoron. And if you're gonna name your business that, the polveron better be good:)

Thanks Joy.

Polveron would make a great surprise, Stephen.

Billy Zabka is a legend Bagito!

Give it a try Irene, it's not that hard to make.

Hey there Krizia. Maybe next year he'll be a polvoron.

Hi Mila! No, I didn't oil the shot glass. The mixture is buttery enough that it slides out easily.

Thanks Christine!

Thanks for posting all these recipes!

I was wondering if it's ok to replace white flour with almond meal or spelt, to make it more "nutritious"?


I've tried making polvoron when I was at my grandmother's house.

Thanks for posting this. My grandmother, who passed away several years ago, made the best polvoron and I've been looking for a recipe. This was always my favorite treat!

So I'm taking a class of the filipino or is it philipino...cuisine to cook my bfs favs and the polvorone didnt come out quite as good as this one did lols...

Wow, this is called super authentic preparation
