How to make Edible Succulents
To make Dollar Store Edible Succulents you will need:
- Rainbow circus peanuts
- Small terra-cotta planter
- chocolate sandwich cookies (optional)
I found both the circus peanuts and the mini terra-cotta flower pots used here at our local Dollar Tree store. This entire craft cost a whopping $5 total (1 bag of Circus Peanuts, 4 mini pots)!
Directions to make Dollar Store Edible Succulents:
Begin by removing the green circus peanuts from the bag. These will be the peanuts you use for your planter.
Next, carefully clean the inside of the mini terra-cotta pots well.
Now place a napkin inside to create some cushioning. Or, you could crush up some chocolate sandwich cookies to make a shallow layer of ‘dirt’!
Next, using a small knife, slice each peanut in half lengthwise. Then, slice those halves in half again width wise. This will give you several sizes to work with.
Now arrange the circus peanuts in the flower-pot making sure to add them at various heights. You can add as many circus peanuts as you wish and even add some different colors, too.
And that’s it! Your adorable edible succulents are now ready to be served!
So there you have it – a quick, easy and affordable Spring-themed treat that looks as good as it tastes!
