Cookies and Cream Polvoron Recipe
Polvoron is a Filipino shortbread snack or delicacy that does not require baking and the ingredients are very affordable. This homemade cookies and cream flavored Polvoron is very easy but making this requires continuous stirring to prevent the mixture from burning.
Although I used Carnation Instant Nonfat Dry Milk, any brand of powdered milk would do it. You can even use a chocolate milk powder if you are willing to experiment.
Aside from cookies and cream, you can also use different flavored add-ons, like rice flakes, (pounded or flattened crispy rice), graham crumbs, crushed nuts, chocolate chips, and other flavored toppings.
You can buy a special mold for Polvoron at a specialty baking shop or at Asian grocery stores. They come in different shapes, but oblong is the most common one. You can also use any molds for candy or cake. You see, I used a round aluminum measuring cup because I can’t find the special mold near me.
You can store Polvoron up to 4 weeks.

Toasting the polvoron requires continuous stirring to prevent the mixture from burning.
