Give someone you love a special treat with these chocolate covered strawberries in a rose candy bouquet. They will be sure to love the yummy roses this Valentine's day.
When I first saw these Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Roses from The Family Kitchen, I knew I was going to have to make some for Valentines. After all, strawberries turned into roses? Genious! Yummy! and Beautiful! Love it!!
So I gathered up my supplies to turn these roses into a rose candy bouquet.
I started with 6 medium sized strawberries. I used 3 4 inch sucker sticks and 3 6 inch sucker sticks to give the roses different heights. I put a little bit of melted chocolate on the ends of the sucker sticks and stuck them into the base of the strawberry.
I stuck the strawberry roses into a piece of Styrofoam to let them dry. I like to put them at an angle, so if they drip still, it will drip onto the Styrofoam and not down the stick.
Once the red chocolate was hard, I used black chocolate to drizzle a line down the sides of the rose to give it the rosebud look.
Once all the chocolate was hard, I wrapped the strawberry rose in Saran Wrap and tied it with green curly ribbon. I used the same method I showed you how in my Candy Bouquet Tutorial except that I tied it on one side and then flipped the ends around to the back and tied more curly ribbon on the back side. This gave it a full flowery look.
I found a vase at Dollar Tree and filled it with Valentine M&M candies. Then I cut a piece of bright green tissue paper and nestled a square of Styrofoam down in the top.
I placed the strawberry roses down into the Styrofoam in a fun pattern. Then used some greenery leaves and "baby's breath" I bought at Dollar Tree to fill in around the roses.
I ended up with this beautiful candy bouquet made with chocolate strawberries.
Isn't it fun?
