Kiss Me Candy Roses
|Title:||Kiss Me Candy Roses|
For each candy rose, spread "Safe Confectioners' Glue" on bottom of one red foil-wrapped Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate. Firmly press the bottom of another Kiss to it. Insert florist wire into one pointed end of double Kisses. Wrap a 4-inch square of clear cellophane around double Kisses, twisting cellophane tightly around Kisses. Starting at bottom of rose, wrap florist tape around edges of cellophane, continuing down the full length of wire with tape. Add 1 or 2 artificial leaves, if desired, securing leaves in place with florist tape. Tie candy roses together with a bow.
