In this video I show you how to make a chocolate bouquet. It is really easy and, if you are giving it as a gift, you can make sure it’s full of their favourite chocolates. Let me know which chocolates you would use in the comments. Yum! I have made a few chocolate bouquets for gifts and I have got such a great response. The only thing is it’s so pretty that people were not sure if they could eat it!! So forget flower bouquets and try this!!
What you’ll need to make a chocolate bouquet
- Foil covered chocolates or truffles
- Chocolate bars- pick the recipients favourites, you need at least 8 chocolates bars.
- Big chocolate bar – to hide the stems of the chocolate flowers
- Crepe paper/ tissue paper
- Bamboo skewers
- Sellotape or scotch tape (depends where you’re from 🙂
- Oasis or you can use polystyrene or sand
- Flower pot
How to make a chocolate bouquet
Cut tissue paper into 13 cm or 5 inches square. You need a square for each foil wrapped chocolate. I have twelve in my bouquet.
Fold the squares diagonally off centre, as per the photo below.
Use the sharp end of the bamboo skewer and press it into the foil covered chocolate. Mind your hands. You do not want the skewer to come out the other side.
Wrap the folded tissue paper around the foil covered chocolate to make a flower. Use tape to secure the flower.
Tape the chocolate bars to the bamboo skewers.
Cut your oasis to fit into your flower pot. Get some sheets of tissue paper and put the oasis into it. The paper gives you a nice backdrop and hides the oasis.
Now the fun begins, start placing your chocolate flowers in the oasis. Stand back from it every now and then to make it sure it looks pretty.
Add the big bar of chocolate, mine is 100g, at the end to hide the bamboo skewers. And your done!
I hope that you love this DIY as much as I do. I also really hope that if you are giving it as a gift that they really love it too! Which would you prefer a bouquet of flowers or chocolates? Let me know in the comments below. I would prefer a chocolate bouquet.
