Valentine’s Day Special: How to make a gorgeous chocolate flower bouquet in 30 minutes

It’s time for Cupid to do his work again. If you are still struggling with unique presents for your better half, why not make something yourself? If you can manage it, you could craft a romantic love poem, but for those of us without the Shakespearean touch it is easier to make something with our hands than to immortalize our love in eternal lines. So, for us lesser mortals, why not speak the flower lingo to show your affection. Did you know 1 flower means love at first sight; 3 flowers mean I love you; 9 means an eternal love and 11 means you are my treasure one?

So today we are going to show you how you can use the flower lingo to express your love and save a buck or two by creating this romantic Ferrero chocolate flower bouquet!

Time required: 30 minutes

Tools you will need:

  • clear cellar tape (I used a cloudy white in the pictures for a clearer demonstration)
  • scissors
  • rubber band x 1
  • ruler

Materials you will need to make 9 chocolate flowers for your bouquet:
