Edible Flowers

Pin It

I am sharing something fun with you today! I'm going to show you how to make these pretty little edible flowers!
(I have a super cute Mother's Day dessert that I will be sharing tomorrow that I used these for - stay tuned!)
You can use these to dress up your cakes, cupcakes, treats in a jar, or just make them for a fun party favor. These are a really fun thing to make with your kids too. Let's get started!





Edible Flowers
By: Back For Seconds


You will need:

  • Large marshmallows
  • Pretzel sticks
  • M&M's or similar candy (I used pastel M&M's)
  • White chocolate melted
Cut a large marshmallow in half horizontally. 
Take a pretzel stick and dip the tip in the melted white chocolate, then push it into the marshmallow to make the flower stem.
Spread a layer of melted white chocolate on the sticky cut side of the marshmallow. Place an M&M in the center. 
Arrange 5 M&M's in the color of your choice around the center M&M to make the petals of the flower.
Lay flat and let the melted chocolate harden in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before standing them up. 

I really loved making these and I hope you give them a try!
