Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

valentines-hearts-CI was on Pinterest a couple months ago and found for candy cane hearts that were both simple and completely adorable. These are all over Pinterest, mostly people turning them into lollipops. I’m not sure who exactly started this idea, but the oldest post on these I could find is here, so I’m gonna give her credit for the idea.

I’m not crazy over lollipops, so I decided to make these as handheld bites. They were more delicious to me that way, plus a little cheaper too since you don’t have to go out an buy lollipop sticks in addition to the other items.

Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

Preheat the oven to 300.

valentines-hearts-2

Place candy canes on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Try and match up the colors/sizes of the candy canes (because they’re not all the same) to make hearts. Bake for three minutes. When they’re done, pinch the edges so they stick together. They will be warm to the touch, so be careful.

While the candy canes are baking, melt the candy melts in the microwave (putting them in a cute microwavable dish isn’t necessary, but it looks nice).

valentines-hearts-4

Spoon chocolate into the centers (this actually uses more chocolate than I thought. It’s about four to five discs per bite). The chocolate won’t be smooth, but it’s okay. Put them — tray and all — into the fridge for fifteen minutes. Once they’ve cooled, flip them over to serve. The bottom (which was against the paper) will be completely smooth and really pretty.

These are really cute as a Valentine’s Day treat, a Christmas treat, even a party favor.

What would you make these for?
