Alfenique dia los Muertos
— Sugar skulls are part of Mexico's Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) tradition. Typically sugar is boiled and poured into ceramic molds. Once hardened, they are removed and decorated with colorful icings. The name of a loved one who has passed away is written across the forehead in remembrance. These are placed at altars honoring treasured relatives, and can be eaten later. Other shapes are also made, such as lambs and doves, but only the skulls receive the names of those who are deceased.
Chocolate Covered Peanut Patties(Mazapan) — "This very rich Mexican candy is something like a giant peanut butter cup made with dark chocolate and slightly grainy, freshly ground peanuts. As the name indicates, it is a Mexican adaptation of marzipan, substituting peanuts for ground almonds."
