También se conoce como (Almendras) garrapiñadas


Explanation:
No faltan en la típica mesa navideña.

Aquí va la receta que hallé en Internet! Tal vez te ayude a identificarlas.


Garrapiñada: Se parten las almendras (o maníes, o avellanas, o nueces)tostadas (200 grs.), se las pone en una olla de hierro con un poco de azúcar (1/2 taza), y se le hecha una 300 cc de agua, se revuelve continuamente mientras el agua se evapora lograndose así la adherencia del azúcar a las almendras. Tratar de que el azúcar no caramelice.

Peladillas or Candied Almonds


Explanation:
I do not agree translating peladillas as garapiñados because it is a completely different kind of candy, "Garapiñados" are penauts covered with fried syrope-like sugar, which renders a rough redish covering, and usually from Mexico, and "peladillas" are pine nuts or almonds covered with a white, hard and uniform layer of candy.
Peladillas are better known in Spain, specifically from Valencia, usually prepared for Christmas season.
Since peladillas are a typical candy from a specific region, I strongly suggest to translate it as "Peladillas" and depending on your target readers, write an explanation between parenthesis or the like.

Hope it helps
