  13. I LOVE your idea of dipping the rose in chocolate! A great tutorial here. I made a bouquet of bacon roses for our anniversary this year and we're still talking about them. I found using 2 slices of the thick bacon worked best too. I think it's such a great project for kids too. Love the ease of just doing them in the microwave. I baked mine partially, but this would be a lot quicker. Thanks so much for sharing at Weekend Potluck. Please come back soon. We love having you over.
