Mother’s Day Flower Bouquet Treat
Mother’s Day is THE day to spoil Mom! Treat her to an edible flower bouquet that’s full of sweetness. This is an easy and fun treat to make for mom, grandmom, friends, etc. You can choose your mom’s favorite flavors and colors to make it extra special just for her!
I found a cute green bowl for my bouquet at Michael’s but you could also give Mom a bouquet tied with ribbon too. There are lots of possibilities for this easy treat.

Step 1 The first step is making your candy flowers! Using the Wilton® Candy Melts® is very easy, so follow the instructions for the candy flower molds and your candies. Try the new flavored Candy Melts® and your Mom’s favorite colors.
Step 2 When flowers have popped out of molds, use a mini paintbrush to add on more melted candy and sprinkle with colored sprinkles.
Step 3 I found this cute green bowl in the spring section of Michaels. Fill it with mini brownies or cupcakes. These will hold the sticks in place.
Step 4 Top cupcakes (or brownies) with chocolate frosting and sprinkle with crushed dark-chocolate cookies to resemble “dirt”.
Step 5 Place your lollipop sticks down into the cupcakes or brownies until secure.
Step 6 Tie on a “Happy Mother’s Day” note tag for Mom!
