Jelly beans are one of my favorite candies so I really love this time of year. I buy a bag of them almost every time I go grocery shopping.
Our cabinet was started to overflow with jelly beans so I wanted to do something with them.
These little flowers are the sugary version of Edible Arrangements.
To make flowers on a stick, you will need jelly beans, toothpicks and cookie/cake pop sticks.
Cut a few toothpicks into smaller bits by cutting at an angle so both ends are sharp.
Poke a cake pop stick into a jelly bean. That will be your center. Then just poke one end of your toothpick piece into a jelly bean and the other into your center jelly bean.
Do that all the way around the jelly bean until it looks like a flower.
You can also just do a flower that is not on a stick by just adding the jelly bean petals the entire way around.
The flowers without a stick can be used as a cupcake topper or cake decoration. I made brownie cups since it kind of looked like dirt 🙂
Because there are small sharp pieces of toothpick involved, it’s best to use this just as decoration or make sure to take the flower apart and remove the stick pieces before giving to kids.
Then enjoy. These guys finished these flowers in about thirty seconds.
Happy Easter Week!
