candy melts® rose bouquet

This Valentine’s Day, shower them with flowers – the edible kind, of course! These sweet candy roses are unbelievably easy to make. Just about everything you need is included in the kit below: Candy Melts®, mold and matching lollipop sticks. It’s even got leaf-shaped tags, so you can write a name for each special candy rose.
Step 1
Begin by melting the red candy included in the kit, following the instructions on the packaging.

TIP: Did you know that Wilton® disposable candy decorating bags are microwave-safe? That’s right, you can just put your Candy Melts® inside a bag, microwave it, snip the tip and go! It’s a great way to avoid extra clean-up time while you work, and we highly recommend using this method.
Step 2
Once the red candy is melted inside the decorating bag, cut a small hole in the bag’s tip. 
Step 3
Fill each rose mold about halfway full with melted candy. When you’ve filled all six cavities, tap the mold gently against your working surface to remove any air bubbles that may be stuck in there. 
Step 4
Place a lollipop stick in each mold cavity, turning it evenly to make sure it’s coated with candy. 
Step 5
Fill the remainder of each cavity with more melted candy. Tap the mold against your working surface one more time. 
Step 6
Chill the candy until the bottom of the mold appears frosty and the candy inside is firm. This should take about 10 to 15 minutes. 
Step 7
Place the mold on a flat surface and gently twist it to release the individual pieces of candy. 
Step 8
Slide a leaf about halfway up each lollipop stick. Feel free to position the leaf exactly as you like. Repeat for the other candy roses.
 
TIP: We think writing a name on each leaf before you attach it to a lollipop stem is an extra-sweet touch!
