Put a smile on the faces of your wedding guests when they sit down to their tables and see a bouquet of chocolate roses. To make, place two wrapped Hershey's kisses end to end and wrap with red cellophane. Without puncturing the chocolate, insert a florist wire, bamboo skewer or green pipe cleaner into the cellophane. Tape together with green florist tape and continue wrapping the tape around until it covers the wire. Decorate with a bow or silk rose leaves. Let the guests each take one home as a wedding favor.
Can any good brand of chocolate be used for dipping strawberries and still set up hard when cool? If not, can anything be done to it or added to the melted chocolate to ensure it will set up hard to the touch?
