Chocolate Flowers

flSo the two things women love most on mothers day is chocolate and flowers!! Or at least I know I do! :) So why not combine the two?

First find 2 vases…one that can fit inside of the other. I found these at dollar tree.

Make a label to wrap around the vase, then glue dot it on.

Fill the small vase with water and flowers and stick it in the large vase. Then fill up with your favorite candy! I love the bliss chocolates and caramel kisses, and I know my mom does too…so that’s what I used.

Now you have your flowers and chocolates all in one!! This would be super cute for any occasion.

    You are so tricky!! When I first glanced at this post in my Google reader I thought…"OK she must use fake flowers for this because they would make the chocolate all nasty!" two vases…brilliant!
