Mexican Peanut Brittle (Palanquetas de Cacahuates)
A buttery Mexican-style peanut brittle is the ideal edible gift.Grant Cornett

This thick, satisfying brittle is unique, thanks to the addition of piloncillo, a dark, unrefined Mexican cane sugar that's pressed into molds. It already has its own caramel notes before cooking, plus earthy hints of rum and smoke, which bring complexity to the palanquetas' flavor.
