Berry Sweet Bouquet

Berry Sweet Bouquet

Make the perfect arrangement for that special person on your valentine list: a dozen candy-covered strawberry roses.


  • 12 wooden skewers
  • Cotton swab
  • Green food coloring
  • 12 large strawberries
  • 14 ounces of candy melts (we used Wilton brand)

Fresh mint


For flower stems, use a cotton swab dipped in green food coloring to tint the wooden skewers. Let them dry (ours took about 2 hours).

Stem the strawberries, then insert a skewer into each one.

Heat the candy melts according to the package directions. Dip each strawberry into the melted candy, twirling it to coat it completely.

Stand the skewers in a vase or tall glass and let the candy harden. Add fresh mint to resemble rose leaves, and keep the bouquet chilled until it's time to give it to your sweetie.
