Aparon wafers (Philippines).jpg
Place of originPhilippines

Aparon are Filipino wafers drizzled with caramelized sugar and optionally, sesame seeds. They are uniquely made from unconsecrated hostia (communion wafers). They were first manufactured by a religious order who baked communion wafers for the Catholic Church, but needed a way to make use of extra and discarded wafers.[1][2]
