The bonet (IPA [bu ' nɛt]) is a typical spoon sweet of Piedmont made of cioccolato and amaretti. In Piedmontese bonet means hat. In some interpretations name would refer to the form of mold the bonet is cooked. In other word hat would make reference to the fact that the bonet is served at the end of the meal, ago by "cap" to the rest.
In some historical Piedmont documents in the 13th it is mentioned the bonet even if in a form different from that we know today since the cocoa come from America much later.
The so colled "historic" bonet was prepared in Piedmont without cocoa, that as we have seen should still be discovered, but eggs, milk, sugar and amaretti.
