Directions:

1

Assemble cookie boxes

To make the cookie boxes, place two whole cookies next to each other standing up. You want enough space between them to place another wafer lying down.

Cut another wafer into thirds for the short ends of the box.

Attach cookies with frosting

Using the chocolate frosting, pipe a line of frosting along the bottom of the side pieces and attach to the bottom cookie.

Attach the smaller side cookies the same way, securing with frosting.

When flower box is assembled, finish by piping a layer of frosting into the bottom of the box.

3

Attach gummies

We did one box with flower candles and one with gummies. To attach the gummies, we cut small white toothpicks in thirds. Then we just stuck the fruit or flower gummy shape to the top.

"Plant" flowers

Mix the cake mix and chocolate chips together. Spoon the "dirt" over the frosting until the box is filled.
