Tootsie Roll Rose - ButterYum

Got any leftover Tootsie Rolls hanging around after Easter?  I thought I'd repost this cute idea for those of you who do.

They're actually kind of fun and relatively easy to make using fresh (soft) tootsie rolls. Start by rolling a small ball, then smoosh it into a petal shape (the candy will soften from the heat of your hands). Roll the first petal tightly to form the center of the rose.

Keep making petals and apply them, one-by-one in concentric circles, until your flower is done (pinch off any extra from the bottom). All together I used 2-3 small candies per rose.

Now tell your little one to close his/her eyes and prepare to delight in the huge smile they'll give you when they see you've made.
