Panellets - Sweet potato chocolates

Panellets are a very special treat from Catalonia.


  • 500 grounded almonds
  • 400g sugar
  • 200g potatoes
  • 1 lemon, untreated
  • 1 egg


Cook and peel the potatoes. Push them through a ricer and let the mass cool down.
Mix the almonds, sugar and potatoes and knead to a mass.
Rub the lemon zest and add. Stir everything well.

Form the mass into 2-3 cm thick balls and roll them in the egg.
Bake the Panellets in the oven at about 170 C, until they are golden in colour.
