What you need:
- Some kind of stick
- Modeling Chocolate (preferably white and brown)
- Rolling Pin
Let’s get started!
Make 5 round balls and a snake from your modeling chocolate and put it on a piece of wax paper so it doesn’t stick.
Roll your chocolate with a rolling pin until it is flat.
Then, take your pop stick and push a strawberry on it.
Dip the strawberry in white chocolate until it is completely covered.
Take the snake that we rolled flat earlier, and roll it up. Make sure you have about one quarter of it rolled up, and the rest of it still flat. Place the rolled up part on the tip of the strawberry and wrap the flat part around it.

Now take your petals and carefully wrap them around the sides of the strawberry.
Make sure that each petal overlaps with the previous one, so none of the white chocolate shows through.
Make sure that even the bottom of the strawberry is covered.
We used five petals in this example, but feel free to add more to make the rose bigger and more impressive.
When you have all your petals placed on the strawbery, carefully bend the tops of the petals outwards. It will give it a more blooming and open look.
Repeat how ever often you want, or however big you want your valentine’s day bouquet to be! Add some color by making a couple of roses from white chocolate too!
