Flower Pot Muffins with Candy Roses

Mother's Day is almost here and when I came across these adorable silicone flower pots for baking, I knew I had to make a Mother's Day treat with them! My Mom loves gardening so I decided to use the Candy Roses I created for Stella's birthday last month and add them to a Chocolate Flower Pot Muffin.
They turned out cuter than I imagined and are a precious Mother's Day gift and treat!

Ingredients:

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Arrange silicone flower pots on a baking sheet.
  3. Coat the inside of the pots with nonstick spray. 
  4. Use a cookie scoop and add batter to the flower pots, filling 3/4 full.
  5. If you have any remaining batter fill up muffin liners. I made 6 flower pots and a dozen muffins.
  6. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. While the muffins bake, make the candy roses using jolly rancher candy and wooden skewers.

  8. Cut the skewers in half {depending on how tall you want your roses to be}.
  9. Using a marker or paint, color the skewers attached to the flower green. 
  10. Remove muffins from the oven and let cool completely then place on a platter or decorative tray. 
  11. Insert one stemmed rose into each flower pot.
  12. Optional: decorate with floral toothpicks, green icing, sprinkles, and floral napkins. 
  13. Serve with a spoon for scooping out and enjoy your beautiful treat!
I found these silicone flower pots at Cracker Barrel restaurant.
 I have also seen them by Wilton brand at Michael's craft stores and Kroger grocery store. 
As always you can find them on Amazon too!
