How To Gift The Tootsie Roll Candy Roses

These Tootsie Roll Candy Roses may take a bit of time to create, but once you do, they are going to make a perfect special gift for the people on your list for Valentine’s Day.  Add them to a gift basket, and use the candy sticks into a block of styrofoam to keep them standing up, then cover with cellophane.  They will need to stay covered so they don’t dry out and get stale.  Of course, they will likely be eaten super fast anyway!

You can even wrap them individually and gift with a small gift tag to each person in your child’s classroom as a super fun and unique treat.  Just remember that this is going to take some time to complete, so consider your time investment if you are obligating yourself to make 30 of these or more for a classroom treat.
