Dulce de batata (in Spanish: sweet potato candy, or: sweet potato jam) or doce de batata doce (Portuguese expression with the same meaning) is a traditional Argentine, Paraguayan, Uruguayan, Chilean (where it's known as Dulce de Camote) and Brazilian dessert, which is made of sweet potatoes. It is a sweet jelly, which resembles a marmalade because of its hard texture. In Brazil it is known as marrom glacê.

When sold commercially, it is often found canned in flat and round metal cans. In some of the commercial versions of the food, chocolate is added to it.

It is commonly eaten with crackers and/or cheese.
