Why would I want to use welting wafers, instead of other kinds of chocolate?

Chocolate wafers,  melting wafers, candy melts, or melting chocolate – are disks of chocolate that are used as a coating on cookies, fruit, ice cream, candy, molded candy and desserts.  Wafers are compound chocolate, with vegetable oil in place of the cocoa butter. As a result, they are easy to melt and mold.

You will find melting wafers easier to use.   Additionally they offer consistent candy making and baking results with no tempering required.  Lastly you will love the smooth-as-silk texture and lustrous sheen this type of chocolate brings to dessert.
