Step 1. Stick the lollipop sticks into the Rice Krispies squares. Easy peasy.
Step 2. Melt your molding chocolate in the microwave. Use small intervals, 30-60 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted. Then, spoon the melted chocolate over the Rice Krispies square and use the back of the spoon to smooth it out so you have a nice, even coat and the whole square is covered in chocolate.
Step 3. Let the chocolate covered Rice Krispies squares dry on a piece of parchment paper or silicone baking sheet. I find the silicone backing sheets work best. If you use parchment paper, be sure to move the Rice Krispies squares a couple of times during the drying process to ensure they don't stick.
Step 5. Arrange the flowers in the terracotta pot, sticking the bottom of the sticks into the Styrofoam ball.
Step 6. Finish off your flower arrangement by adding in the fake flowers. And that's it!
We're going to a Valentines party with the kids on Sunday, and I'm going to bring this as a hostess gift / treat for the kiddies. If you're having a party, another idea is to put each flower in it's own mini terracotta pot as a party favour. Or, make an arrangement just for you and eat the whole thing before the kids get home from school. I was more than a little tempted to do this myself.
Happy Valentines Day!
