Name this (mexican?) candy, please.

Accidently posted in another thread:
I fondly remember a candy from my childhood, and I haven’t seen any of it for a lot of years. It was reddish, round (a disc) and often appeared to have been formed in a mold. Made of sugar, peanuts, and coconut. I associate it with mexican food, but that’s probably because we got it in the mexican “mom and pops” in my 'hood. It was next to the pan dulces, and pretty cheap for it’s size.
Peace,

The only thing I can think of that matches that is the “peanut patties” that Segovia Candy dumps out to every Mexican food joint in the southwest. I don’t think coconut is involved. Look like these?

Any chance that it was a praline? My recipe uses pecans, not peanuts, and no cocoanut, but may be a variant.

Yep, those are them. I musthave been imagining the coconut. Thanks.
I don’t think I’ll be ordering any, though. My memory, prodded by your link. seems to be improving. :wink:

I have had a mexican candy similar to the prilines so popular in the south, but Mr. Ash nailed it.
