Just an FYI - Wilton's makes candy melts that you can melt down to pour into candy molds for parties, showers, etc. You can buy them at Walmart. They make all different colors (light & dark cocoa, white, red, etc). I emailed them to ask about the safety of their candies. Here is the reply I received:

Dear Consumer
Thank you for contacting us regarding your allergen questions. I will be happy to provide you with this information.

Our melts {coco/light & dark} do not have peanut, however it is present in the plant. We would recommend you not use this product.
Please be aware, the following information regarding food allergens, food sensitizes or food specifications is to the best of our knowledge believed to be accurate.

Thanks for this information. It does not list on the product that it is processed in a plant with peanuts at the store in which I bought them. (A Party Store) My PA son has had them in the past with no incident but I will not make them anymore. Thank you
