If you're getting a little tired of hearts-Cupids-red-pink-explosion everywhere right about now, I have something unique and refreshing and utterly different for you: roses!

*Crickets chirp*

Okay, so roses are a little played out too. It is Valentine's Day season, after all! But I'll bet that no matter how tired you are of red roses, you haven't seen many edible roses hand-sculpted out of chocolate, hmm?

Chocolate Roses are made out of a little something called chocolate plastic, which is basically a mix of chocolate and corn syrup that's nice and pliable. (They can also be made from fondant or marzipan, if you prefer.) They look amazing scattered on top of a cake, or cupcakes, or brownies--they're not too particular! They're also surprisingly easy to make, once you get the hang of it. I've put together a photo tutorial showing how to make chocolate roses, just in time for you to astound your loved ones with your chocolate rose-making prowess. Go forth and delight.
