DIY Candy Roses

Aloha Cupcakes!!!

Today is Mothers day. I know this is a little late but I am posting it anyways. I made them in several colors. Here is a tutorial on how to make them.

Things you will need for 1 rose:

8  Hard Jolly Ranchers, in 2-3 colors                                                                          1 Skewer or lollipop stick



  1. Place wrapped Jolly Ranchers in a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Pour in water until just covered.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute. While it is microwaving put on food safe disposable gloves.
  4. Feel candy, if it is squishy then it is ready. If not microwave 30 more seconds or until ready.
  5. Working fast smash jolly rancher with your fingers. Then unwrap and mold to rose petal shape. Wrap petal tightly around lollipop stick.
  6. Repeat step 5  with the next 5 jolly ranchers on top of each other like shown.
  7. Mold the last two like the base petals on a rose.

I hope the directions are clear. Also it took me FOREVER to find hard jolly ranchers. I found them at Walmart.

In Love,

Deborah 🙂
