A teja (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈtexa]) is a dumpling-shaped confection from the Ica Region of Peru. It contains manjar blanco filling (similar to dulce de leche) and either dried fruits or nuts. The exterior is usually a sugar-based fondant-like shell,[1] but there also exists chocolate versions too (known by the blend chocotejas[2]).
