This is my polvoron recipe that I have been using for a couple of years now.
Through trial and error finally I was able to make them really great quality, my friends told me these polvoron look and taste like they were bought from a store. I have had requests to sell them, but honestly I haven’t thought about turning it into a business yet. For now I”m just happy making and giving them to my friends.
But I know that many people are looking for home-based business ideas, and I think selling polvoron is a really good idea if you can find the time for it. So I thought of sharing this business idea with you.
Also this recipe is firm, not crumbly. It’s important that the polvoron you make has a firm or hard texture so they don’t crumble easily!

Are the ingredients for this polvoron hard to find? Not really. I live in Canada and I can find the ingredients in almost any grocery store. The ingredients are very basic: flour, powdered milk, sugar and butter.
The only challenge you may encounter is where to find the polvoron mold. I found this mould in a local Filipino store.
