Mother's Day Chocolate Flowers

We always make flowers for my mom for Mother’s Day, but this year I wanted to mix it up a bit and make her some edible ones.  That is why we decided to make these yummy Mother’s Day Chocolate Flowers.  I know my mom will love them because she loves flowers and she loves chocolate, so this is a win-win. The fact that the grandkids made them just makes these the best gift we could make for grandma.

This was actually our first time ever making candy like this, so I was not really sure how it was going to go. I have to say it was way easier than I thought it was going to be.  Both girls were able to help, which just shows you how truly easy this was.

I decided to just melt the chocolates in a plastic bag to make the whole process quick and less messy which ended up working great.  While one bag was in the microwave melting, I had my daughter making flowers with another one.  It took less than 10 minutes to fill our mold using 4 different colors.  Then, we just waited for them to harden and we made some more.

Supplies

 

Directions

Melt Chocolate

Place some of your candy melt in a plastic baggie and microwave it for about 1 min. to 1 min. 15 seconds.

Mix Baggie

Massage the baggie after you remove it from microwave then cut a small hole in one of the corners

Dispense

Squeeze the bag to get the candy melt out and fill your mold with your candy.

Add Sticks

Once the molds are full, place your sticks in and make sure they are covered with the candy.

Let Sit

Let the molds sit out for about 30 min. until they are hard.

Pop them Out

Once hard, they should just pop right out of your mold.

Now, just put some together and tie a bow around them or put them in a vase for Mom.

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
