And remember, the fun doesn’t stop there.
Lemon Drop Bees
Make your guests swoon over bee themed treats by serving lemon drop bees. These little candies are shaped like bees and are perfect to serve to your guests at a birthday party, tea party, or even a bridal shower! Place lemon drop bees on top of your favorite cookies or desserts for an adorable presentation! You can also use edible markers to draw on bee wings.
These bee-themed candies are easy to make and are fun to eat! Simply slice some almonds for the wings. Use a toothpick to attach the finished bees. To make the praline for the icing, grind the praline in a food processor with a metal blade until it is a fine powder, but not a powder. Split the buttercream into two equal batches and add the praline to one. You can also add yellow food coloring to the buttercream if desired.
Jelly bees are edible and make great bee themed treats. You can create a simple marzipan bee cake and add a black striped design to it. Use gold luster dust in between the stripes and sprinkle some powdered sugar to make the bee’s eyes. To make a more elaborate version, drizzle the bees with honey. Alternatively, you can make a whole hive out of the cake and eat it for dessert.
Interestingly, you can make your own jelly by using some natural ingredients, such as bee balm. This herb has a minty flavor, which can be used in recipes. You can also use the leaves to season meats. Bee balm can replace oregano in a jelly recipe. Bee balm also has a similar minty flavor and can be used as a substitute for Oregano.
Oreo ball themed bees
If you’re hosting a birthday party this year, why not make your guests Oreo ball themed bees? These sweet treats will surely delight your guests. You can customize these bees for any age by using different colors of Oreo balls. The eyes and veins of these tasty treats can be made of red or green oreos. For the center, you can put blue m&ms.
First, melt the candy melts. You can do this in the microwave by heating them at half power for two to three minutes, stirring every thirty seconds. Next, pour the chocolate candy melts into the decorating bag and snip a small corner. Now, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Dip each Oreo in yellow chocolate. After a few seconds, dip the other Oreo in white chocolate.
Oreo ball shaped Oreos
These insanely decadent Oreos are made with just three simple ingredients and look gourmet, but are actually made without cooking or baking! You can make them with your children or make a batch to give away as gifts. To make Oreo balls, crush Oreos in a food processor, and then mix them with softened cream cheese. Roll the mixture into balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and then serve!
To make chocolate Oreo balls, first melt the chocolate candy melts on 50% power in a microwave. Stir every 30 seconds. Place the balls on a waxed paper or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Allow to freeze for 20-30 minutes. Once frozen, dip them in candy coating. If using a microwave, melt chocolate on 50% power for about 1 minute 20 seconds, stirring until smooth.
