This interesting gadget [shown above] is usually sold in Filipino and Asian grocery stores. It compresses the flour mixture into delicate shapes of either round or oval. I run out of colorful wrappers, so I just used waxed paper for this batch.
Shown above is a box of chocolate covered polvoron from Goldilocks, a leading restaurant and bakeshop chain in the Philippines which have now made it to some parts of California. Although the chocolate they used was the commercial kind with a not so intense chocolate flavor, it was a very creative idea I must say. I also read about a successful local business, Chocovron, selling and exporting these chocolate covered versions.
I also like these assorted colorful polvoron [shown above] which are sold at most Asian or Filipino groceries with the brand, Aling Conching's. The tropical and Asian flavors of pandan [fragrant screwpine leaf], ube [purple yam], and fruity flavors of melon and strawberry are intense in each polvoron I tasted. Colorful cellophane or Japanese paper wrappers give these polvoron treats a festive look. They make great gifts during the Christmas season when they are often wrapped in traditional holiday colors of red and green.
