CommonGround volunteer Molly Aden shares her recipe for Candied Rose Petals with Pure Nebraska viewers.

Candied Rose Petals


  • 1 cup rose petals
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  • Before getting started, wash and dry your petals.
  • Whisk your egg white until frothy.
  • Gently paint each side of the petals with egg white using a paint brush dedicated to food or your fingers. Make sure to brush off excess egg white.
  • Next, place the petals in the bowl of sugar, making sure to coat both sides. 
  • Transfer the sugar-coated rose petals to a parchment paper leaving space in between each.
  • Place in a cool, dry spot for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Use to decorate your favorite cake, cookie cupcake!
