On to the Starburst flowers! So I was walking around the store grabbing items to make the strawberry curd when these flowers just popped into my head. I’ve been playing with starbursts since I was a kid, but had never made flowers like this before. They are incredibly easy, however, your fingers will get pretty sticky, especially if you’re making a couple dozen.
You’ll need a pair of scissors, starbursts, and candy pearls. Start by unwrapping your starbursts, and then flattening them with your fingers until they’re about half their normal thickness.
Next, you’ll make 2 small cuts towards to the center, without cutting all the way through to the center. After the first two cuts, you’ll shape the corner into your first petal. Then work your way around cutting and making the rest of the petals.
Once your petals are all formed, add a pearl candy to the center, and Voila! Starburst flowers to make any dessert spring worthy.
