flower m&m rolo chocolate chip cookie cups

i took last week off from blogging 
just to enjoy the blooming flowers and trees.
actually i enjoyed them a little too much 
cuz the darn pollen crawled up my nose 
and boy oh boy i turned into a 
sneezing fiasco fit.
achoo! achoo! achoo! achoo! achoo!
over and over and over and over and over.

it was quite annoying actually,
as it drained a lot of energy outta me 
and prevented my brain cells from 
thinking up crafty things.

but now i am back,
and it's not cuz i stopped achoo-ing,
 it's only cuz i have grown accustomed 
to breathing out of my mouth or outta one nostril. 

so what did i do about it?
i made these flowers cuz i for one 
do not have a green thumb whatsoever.
and if you can't beat the darn flower pollen,
ya might as well join 'em.
and not like the constant weeding or 
watering or miracle growing thing 
that goes along with growing flowers, 
these babies can be yours in 20 minutes 
or less if you got really fast hands.

all you need are these:

bake cookies as directed in a mini muffin pan.
then as soon as you take them outta the oven,
now get those fast hands a movin'

corolla center?!
now how's that for flower knowledge?
and you thought i had no flower know how whatsoever!

(actually you are absolutely right...
i googled what do you call a flower center lol)

that way the petals can keep their position 
and not wiggle around when you remove the cookie.

don't they look cool,
like they are growing outta the ground?
what about now?
the cookies look like little pots.
so there you have it.
 i promised you a rose flower garden.
make these for a spring fling, mom's day or fancy schmancy tea brunch with your gal pals.

cool beans huh?
i mean cool flowers.

as for beans, 
i have no idea how to grow those either.
