It's that time of year again and you need a small gift, a special 'thank you' or recognition, whether it's for a teacher, a coach, a colleague, a friend. Make a special chocolate rose or better still, a bouquet of chocolate roses to express your thanks and appreciation.

List of materials

1. Place the square of cellophane over the chocolate. Pull down and twist tightly around the chocolate. Secure it by twisting the end of the florist wire around the base of the chocolate. It should look like a chocolate ball on the end of a wire.

2. Hold the circles of tissue paper together and cut a small 'x' in the centre.
3. Gently push the stem of the wired chocolate through the 'x' slit in the tissue circles and until the chocolate ball sits against the tissue circles.
