This is my way of making chocolate roses its easy fast and not very messy. Its perfect for gifts, cakes, for your valentine, or just a delicous treat, my family loved them. Its a great activity to do w/ a couple of friends or alone(which i prefer:). The thing i love about this is that it cost no more than $5 and not very complicated ingredients or supplies. Like i said this is my way to make them but there are many more ways other than mine!

there are two ways to melt chocolate in the microwave or on the stove. I chose the stove because it the easiest way not scorch or burn it.
    to melt on the stove put the fire on low(if you put it on high its most likely gonna burn)
    then boil the water in a saucepan and put a plate on top (make sure the bottom of the plate doesnt touch the boiling water)
    put chocolate chips inthe plate little at a time
    stir continuously   
    when its completely liquid turn off the stove
To melt chocolate in the micro wave:
     choose a microwavable container
     put in half of the amount of chocolate and put as much time as it
needs to melt(if it burns or scoches add the remaining chocolate and stir.

What is corn syrup. Does anyone know if there is anything similar in the UK?
Normal corn syrup is Golden syrup in the UK, Dark corn syrup is Treacle.. I think
These are beautiful! I am definitely going to have to try this out. Thanks!

does the rose strt to melt when you touch it, hold it for a while or just keep it outside for a while?

well, yes since it is still chocolate but it doesnt melt completely it just gets softer and harder to work with. but all you have to do is let it sit and and hold a cup of ice before starting to work with it again.
Very cool.
Thankyou^_^
