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.
Place some of your candy melt in a plastic baggie and microwave it for about 1 min. to 1 min. 15 seconds.
Massage the baggie after you remove it from microwave then cut a small hole in one of the corners
Squeeze the bag to get the candy melt out and fill your mold with your candy.
Once the molds are full, place your sticks in and make sure they are covered with the candy.
Let the molds sit out for about 30 min. until they are hard.
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.
