Hershey's Kiss Roses
Delight your Valentine with these sweet Hershey's Kisses roses for Valentine's Day. They are very inexpensive and easy to make, and so pretty. I learned how to make these many years ago when our first child was just a baby. She's now 22! And, they're even easier to make now that there are so many varieties of Hershey's Kisses available. Note: If you use color wrapped kisses (instead of the traditional silver), there is no need for the red plastic wrap; clear will be fine. Red roses are always a favorite, but it's okay to be creative, use whatever color (or flavor) you like best. I've also included the meaning of each rose color below, for those who'd like to know!
You can either give a single Hershey's Kiss Rose or wrap them together by the dozen for your special sweetheart.
Supplies needed for each rose:
2 Hershey's Kiss chocolate candies, any flavor
Gather the cellophane together at the bottom of the rosebud, but before twisting the cellophane completely closed, add a pre-cut floral stem with the leaf close to the bud.
Wrap the bottom cellophane closed with floral tape, going around the stem and pulling it tight all the way down to the end.
Now you have a beautiful Hershey's Kiss Rose and can make as many as you want. One, two, six, a dozen, or two dozen.
These rose gifts are also great for Mother's Day, birthday parties, and even wedding favors.
Did you know roses have different traditional meanings according to their color?
