"I made these and just used 12-oz. package of these Make & Mold chocolate cr?me candy wafer disks. I'd also used 1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening. The apricots and cashews I'd kept as is. I used a double boiler to melt candy wafers/shortening. I was able to get 33 candies as I used 2 teaspoons to drop candy mixture onto the prepared baking sheets and chilled the candies until firm/set. This recipe was used for this week's Ingredient Challenge: Apricots! delowenstein"
