Thickly frost sides of each caramel candy with frosting (2 red, 2 green and 2 yellow). Place pops evenly on prepared tray allowing plenty of room between pops so that flower petals can be added.

Starting at the bottom of each pop, place sunflower seeds with pointy edge out in color corresponding to color of frosting around entire bottom edge of candy piece. Continue adding sunflower seeds around each pop until you have four rows of "petals" and sides are completely covered.

Tweezers can help with placement of sunflower seeds.

Allow sunflower pops to sit overnight or until frosting has hardened enough to hold sunflower seeds. Store in airtight containers in cool, dry place. makes 6 pops. Recipe created for The Hershey Company by Handmade Charlotte.
