  1. For each daffodil, on waxed paper, with rolling pin, roll out yellow and green fruit chews to 1/8-inch thickness . (If too stiff to roll, warm candy in microwave on High 2 to 3 seconds to soften.) From 1 or 2 rolled yellow pieces, cut five 1 1/4-inch teardrop shapes. Pinch together wider end of each teardrop, creating fold of a petal, and slightly pinch narrow end, rounding to shape like a petal. Cut green piece into two or three 1 1/4-inch leaf shapes. Arrange petals, wide end toward center, to resemble flower; press together in center, using a drop of water, if necessary, to help petals stick together. Trim small piece from rounded end of spice drop. Cut out small piece from center of flat end of spice drop; sprinkle with some nonpareils . Press smaller end of spice drop into center of flower. Press green leaves to attach to back of flower. Repeat to make 4 daffodils in all. Do not refrigerate candy flowers.
