Ingredients

  • 24 mini candy canes
  • 12 6″ lollipop sticks
  • 1 cup white candy coating
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. On a parchment lined baking sheet, arrange the candy canes as hearts with the lollipop stick centered in between the two candy canes. Bake for 3 minutes. You want them to be malleable, but not melted.
  2. Remove from oven & shape candy canes into hearts by pinching the the bottom of the heart into the stick and pinching the top ends together. I also pulled the edges out to make my hearts more round and full. They will be hot & you need to work fairly quickly. If the candy canes harden before you have them shaped, just stick them back in the oven for a couple of minutes. I re-heated mine a few times before I got the hang of shaping them the way I wanted them.
  3. Melt candy coating in the microwave at 30 second intervals on medium power, stirring between heatings, until smooth.
  4. Spoon the melted candy coating into the center of each heart, then top with sprinkles. Cool the pops before serving or wrapping.

  1. These are adorable! I want to do these for Christmas and give them as gifts with cocoa!
    One word of advice with the candy coating. If you melt it in a freezer bag you can knead the bag instead of stirring and when it is melted, you can snip off one corner and fill the hearts that way. When you are done you can just toss the bag.

  2. These were so easy to make! I love how it worked so easily in the oven and it will make a great gift for my students. The idea that Ashley Bogan had given about using a freezer bag to microwave the chocolate worked so well, thanks Ashley for the tip.

  3. Trying these today for my son’s class valentines. The freezer bag sounds handy, but toxic. Not sure the bags should be heated in the microwave?
