Let's Make Spring Flower Candy!

Spring has arrived!  At least according to the calendar.  Because I'm a little too excited to see Spring get here, I decided to make a treat for a few special people.

A few years ago I made a platter full of candy flowers for Easter.  They looked so springy that they immediately came to mind when I thought of doing a Happy Spring project.  

Here's What You Need
Bag of square pretzels
Ghirardelli white melting wafers
Pastel-colored M&Ms

Here's What You Do
Preheat the oven to 225.  Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.  

I like to divide the color candies up into small bowls.  This would be a great job for the kiddos.  Or you can totally skip this step if you're not worried about making each flower from the same colors.

Lay 10 pretzels on the parchment-lined baking sheets and top with 2 wafers.  I like working in patches of 10 because if you do more, the wafers begin to harden before you have time to add the M&Ms.  While you're working with one batch, the second one can be in the oven.

Pop in the oven for 5 minutes.  The wafer should be melted, but not runny.  When it comes out, place a candy in the center then put 6 candies around it.  Try to put the stamped "M" side facing down so they don't show.

And just like that, you have a Spring flower candy!  Let them cool completely before you package them.

Now for the packaging - I used a berry box with a little crinkle paper.  The box fit perfectly down into a cellophane bag. 

Add a cute tag and your gift is ready for giving!  My tag was cut by using my Silhouette.  

Happy Spring everyone!
