Candy Cane Hearts

Surprise Me!

I see these candy cane hearts all over the web and in stores. Left with some extra candy canes after Christmas I thought I would give it a try!

All you need are candy canes (I used mini ones) and lollipop sticks.

Place candy canes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Remember to leave enough room for the sticks.

Bake at 300 degrees for ABOUT 5 minutes.  All ovens are different so watch closely until you decide the right time for your oven.  Bake until you just see the candy cane melt.

Place a stick in the candy canes.

Pinch candy canes around the stick.  The candy canes and pan will be hot so be very careful!

Once completely cool you can wrap them up and you have cute treats!

I think they also make really great cupcake toppers. I had to break about 1/2″ off the stick to make it fit into the cupcake.

Last year someone showed me solid hearts they were making.  I can’t find where I saved it anywhere!  If it was you please e-mail me and I will link to you!

Be sure to check out how Make and Takes shows you how to spell LOVE out of melted candy canes!
