Sweet Poblano Delicacies We’re Sure You’ll Fall For
This is a typical sweet throughout most of the Mexican Republic. The palanquetas are typically made by combining roasted peanuts or other nuts with a sticky mixture of melted sugar or piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar). The mixture is then poured onto a flat surface and allowed to cool and harden into thin, crispy bars. The nutty and sweet result offers a satisfying crunch in every bite.
Next on our list are the irresistible Alegrías, which translates to “happiness” in English. These traditional Pueblan sweets are made from popped amaranth seeds mixed with honey or piloncillo and combined with nuts, dried fruits, or even chocolate. The result is a crunchy, slightly sticky treat full of natural flavors and nutrients. Alegrías are often shaped into small bars or molded into playful shapes, making them a delightful and wholesome snack.
Dulce de Leche con Nuez
A heavenly Mexican treat that combines the sweetness of dulce de leche with the crunch of nuts. This dessert begins with the slow simmering of sweetened condensed milk until it transforms into a thick and creamy caramel-like sauce known as dulce de leche. Then, a nut is added on top for a twist of flavor. This delicious treat is among the favorites of Mexicans and visitors alike.
For those with a weakness for creamy delights, jamoncillos are a must-try. These traditional Pueblan sweets resemble fudge and are made with sweetened milk, sugar, and sometimes pumpkin seeds. Some of them have a distinctive red strip on one side that helps identify the flavor.
Tortitas de Santa Clara
These round cookies, born in the Convent of Santa Clara, are made with a unique combination of cookie base, sweetened milk, and pumpkin seed powder. This exquisite treat showcases the skill and craftsmanship of Puebla’s confectioners.
Let’s end our sweet adventure with the iconic Camotes Poblanos. These delightful treats are made from sweet potato, cooked slowly until tender, and infused with flavors like strawberry, lime, pineapple, and orange. The result is a soft, chewy candy with an unforgettable taste. Camotes Poblanos always make for a perfect souvenir to take home.
