Introduction: How to Make Hershey Kiss Flowers
These chocolate "flowers" are great for Valentines' Day and are super easy to do.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Gather all the supplies needed to make a Hershey Kiss Flower. You will need:
wooden kebab skewers
thin green ribbon
a mason jar
Step 2: Gather Tools
Gather all the tools necessary to complete the project. You will need:
Step 3: Roll Out Cellophane
Roll out your colored cellophane so that a large section is flat against the table.
Step 4: Measure the Square
Measure 5 inches using the ruler from the corner of the flat cellophane along the edge of the cellophane.
Mark the measurement (i.e a dot) with the sharpie.
Measure 5 inches from the corner along the other edge.
Mark the other measurement with the sharpie.
Step 5: Trace the Square
Align the ruler with the marked measurements and trace with the sharpie so that you have a 5x5 square.
Step 6: Cut Out the Square
Cut out the square using the scissors and set aside.
Step 7: Measure and Cut the Ribbon
Measure 8 inches of the ribbon and cut it. Set the ribbon aside.
Step 8: Wrap the Skewer
Wrap the skewer with the florist tape. Start just below the tip and work your way down.
Press the tape so that it stays secure.
Cut the tape when you reach the bottom and wrap over the end.
Step 9: (optional) : Break the Skewer
Snap the skewer to the desired length.
Step 10: Connect the Chocolate to the Skewer
Hold a kiss with the flat side up.
Insert the tip of the skewer gently into the chocolate at an angle.
Do not put the tip in between the foil wrapping and the chocolate.
Step 11: Add Another Chocolate
Place another kiss on top of the connected chocolate.
Hold together with your finger and thumb.
Step 12: Wrap the Chocolate in Cellophane
Wrap the chocolate with the cellophane square from step 6.
Place the center of the cellophane square on the tip of the top chocolate and hold with your finger and thumb.
Slide your finger and thumb down the sides, therefore wrapping the chocolate.
Hold the wrapped chocolate with your finger and thumb at the bottom of the two chocolates.
Step 13: Tie the Ribbon
Tie the ribbon just below the bottom chocolate to keep in place.
Place the center of the ribbon behind the base of the chocolate and hold with your finger.
Cross the two ends of the ribbon.
Pull one end through the loop and pull to tighten.
Tie in a bow to finish.
Step 14: Place Flower
Put the flower into the mason jar.
Step 15: (optional): Repeat From Step 4
Repeat the process from step 4 to make another flower.
