Dulce de Batata is a marmalade-like candy from Argentina with a hard texture. It is made of sweet potatoes and is most commonly eaten as a dessert or sweet snack but can also be found on the breakfast table. In-between courses or after meals, Argentinos will serve it with a plate of cheeses, nuts or even cold cuts like homemade sausage.

Similar versions of this sweet potato dessert are also found in neighboring countries such as Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile and Brazil.
