When it comes to Valentine's Day, figuring out what to get for your man can be a trick. Flowers are usually more for the ladies, and even one of those fruit arrangements can have a bit too much of a feminine vibe. Then Doritos created the Ketchup Roses Bouquet, a "bouquet" made from their new ketchup-flavored chips. 

Part snack and part romantic gesture, nothing says "I love you" quite like a dozen roses made from his favorite chips.  

What a game-changer! Unfortunately, it was available only in Canada, and it sold out almost immediately. No worries — now you can make your own Doritos bouquet...

Fill the center of the artificial flower with spray cheese. Select a curly Dorito and place it in the center of the flower.

3. Add the outer petals

Add three to five Doritos around the center petal, securing with spray cheese as needed. Set the flowers in a safe place for a few hours while the cheese hardens and keeps the petals in place.

4. Assemble the bouquet

Once the cheese has hardened, put the flowers back on the stems. Add them to a vase or a favorite glass, and they are ready to deliver to your Valentine.
