Homemade Rose Lollipops!


Happy Valentine’s Day! We wanted to make some sweet and charming homemade rose lollipops using edible dried flowers and flakes of edible gold! They turned out so pretty with the dried rose petals and specks of gold leaf throughout. Personally, I think these would be great party favors for events! You can wrap them up individually and tie them with a bow or message. The homemade lollipop recipe is super easy too, but you must use a candy thermometer. Enjoy and stay charming!

I love the way the dried roses look mixed with the gold. We added it in the mold before we poured the mixture. These are the molds we used.

    I love these for my wedding favors! How exactly did you add the dried rose petals. How long should I dry them? Do you know how long theyre good until?(rose petals). Do they add flavor? Lol, sorry for all the questions, I’m just so intrigued.

      Not sure why! One thing that is incredibly important is making sure the candy thermometer reaches “hard crack” it HAS to reach that, can’t even be a little less… has to be exactly to hard crack or they will not harden when they cool. You can even go a tiny bit over to insure but not too much because you will burn them. Candy making is very temperamental!
