Chocolate Roses for St. Thérèse

by | Oct 1, 2008 | Crafts, St. Therese | 6 comments


Seeing Mary’s adorable Angel Candy Favors the other day reminded me of the Chocolate Roses my sisters and I made years ago. What a perfect craft they would make for the feast of St. Thérèse! My children agreed!

They are quite fun and very simple to make.

Materials:

  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Pink or Red Cellophane, cut into 4 1/2″ squares
  • Florist wire (cut in half with wire cutters, or leave as is to make long-stemmed roses)
  • Green florist tape
  • Silk leaves (optional)


Instructions:

1. Remove the tags from the candy. Take a 4 1/2″ square of cellophane. Place two Hershey kisses together, as pictured.

2. Place the tip of one of the kisses in the center of the cellophane square, then wrap the cellophane around both kisses, gathering the corners together around the tip of the other kiss.

3. Using florist tape, wrap the gathered corners together as tightly as you can without tearing the tape. Insert a florist wire into the gathered cellophane until it meets the tip of the Hershey’s Kiss, and wrap with tape. Do not insert the wire into the chocolate, since it is not food safe. If you’d like, you can use bamboo skewers instead of the florist wire, and then you could stick it right into the chocolate. (I was going to use those, but I am out of them right now.)

4. Continue taping down the length of the wire until it is completely covered with florist tape.


This was my children’s favorite part!

5. If you’d like, tape silk leaves onto the stem.

6. Place in a vase, wrap as a bouquet, or display however you’d like. Enjoy!

    I love this!! I’ve seen these candy roses before, but what a great idea for today!!! Unfortunately it’s too late for us, “Mary” is sick (with the pukes) so we are going no where!!

    We might have to do those cute kiss angels though….all we need is the kisses…late night trip for mama I guess!

    Thanks Jamie!

    You could make the angels tomorrow, and then the roses on the 3rd, the traditional feast of St. Therese. We tend to celebrate both of her feasts in our home! 🙂

    I am so sorry that Mary is sick. I will say a prayer that she is well soon, and the rest of you stay healthy! God Bless!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
