Sweet Serenity Stones - yes, another edible rock project!


Just a few days ago I shared with you a recipe to make cookies 'n cream fudge rocks for a fun Father's Day project. While I was creating my sweet stones, this idea popped into my head and I just had to share it. I know this is the third edible rock recipe to grace these pages in the past month and some of you may be saying, "enough already," but I think this one is really great and worth sharing. I promise I'm done with this idea, for a while anyway!

Milestones Stone Stamps

I had just purchased some stone stamps last week, not really knowing what I'd do with them, but figured sooner or later, I'd have the perfect project idea. These plastic letter stamps can be used to make garden stones or used in any type of clay including the chocolate variety. After I made my stone mountain the other day, I pulled out the stamps and tried them out in my fudge rocks. They worked perfectly. I reworked my original mountain of rocks into 11 large rocks for this project. Then I  spent less than ten minutes adding a nice variety of inspirational sayings.

These stones look and feel like the real deal, but taste divine!



Sweet Serenity Stones (makes 10-12)

You'll need:

1 batch of cookies 'n cream fudge stones (find recipe here)
Roll your cookies 'n cream fudge into various shapes and sizes. You'll need your edible rocks to be large enough to stamp out your inspirational phrases.

Press the stamps into the candy stones creating whatever sayings you'd like. You may have to hold the fudge as you pull up the stamp so you don't distort your letters.

Just a note - you can see that the stamps have letters or numbers on both sides. I pressed the "Y" into the stone which featured the word, "JOY," but you are seeing the "A" that is on the back side of the stamp.


That's it. You are done! Super easy, isn't it?

  5. These are just wonderful! I saw them today in my email and was just amazed by them. Thanks very much for linking them up! I assume that they turned out at least as well as you had hoped, because they are perfect! The font really makes it for me, and they look just exactly like the real serenity stones, which I love BTW. Fantastic job, Beth!

    1. I'm so happy you now have a fun use for your letters. I wish I had bought them before I made my Mother's Day garden stone. I'm sure I'll find many more uses for them now that I know how great they work.

  25. Can you make the rocks ahead of time and then stamp into later? Think this would be a great project to do with my kids yoga class!

  27. Hi, can you do this ahead of time and then stamp the letters in a day later?

    1. I suggest you stamp them the day you shape them into rocks as the fudge will harden as it sits, but I don't see why it wouldn't work a day later. You just might see more cracking around the letters. To keep the fudge soft, store it in an airtight container. That should help.

  28. Sorry but this is nonsense...I came here to learn about how to make the stones now how to stamp things into them like a five year old! Annoying.

  29. Hi Beth, I want to hand write words onto the rocks but I am finding them too soft? It's almost like working with play dough...Amy advie on how to make them"hard" like rocks?

    1. Hi Jennifer, yes these "rocks" being made of fudge are going to be reasonably soft and pliable which makes them easy to stamp. They will stiffen up as they dry in the air. If you want them to be hard you can just let them sit out on the counter for a day or two and the outside will crust over. You can also freeze them and pop them out, write on them, then allow them to thaw.
