How to Make Chocolate Roses

Meld two of the finer things in life with these step-by-step instructions.
By: Holly Christian

Chocolate and roses — a classic combination, right? With this project, you can combine them into a single beautiful creation. You start by making chocolate clay, and if it's sticky, knead it until the corn syrup is suitably mixed in. The clay can be stored for up to two weeks.

Note: For colored roses, use white chocolate and tint it with food coloring.

Materials and Tools:

8 ounces of chocolate (chunks or chips)
3 tablespoons of corn syrup
spoon
microwave-safe bowl

Steps:

1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add corn syrup to the chocolate and mix well.

2. Cover the mixture and chill it in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

3. Roll out ten 1-inch balls from the chocolate clay.

4. Form one ball into a cone shape. This will be the center of the rose.

5. Flatten the remaining nine balls of chocolate. These will be the petals.

6. Mold each flattened chocolate petal to the cone-shaped center until the rose takes shape.
