Super cute and super easy to make. Or as some would say – ‘so pinterest’ these Candy Cane Hearts will set hearts a flutter. The best part is they are very simple to make as you will see below. It’s a question of heating the candy canes enough to mold them together and shape into a heart. I wish I had more left over mini candy canes from Christmas to carry me through to Feb 14th and Valentine’s Day.
How to make Candy Cane Hearts
Take small candy canes and arrange in pairs to form a heart on parchment paper.
- Heat the oven to 250 F and place tray of hearts in oven for about 5 – 7 minutes or until softened.
- Remove from the oven and as the candy canes are cooling push them together to form a heart. Let cool completely.
- You can add a red ribbon and hang on the tree or on a gift or do as I did and arrange on a platter in a circle.
I’m going to buy a few extra packets and squirrel them away for Feb 14th and these will also make the sweetest Valentines.
Only love – in the run up to Christmas make it a daily ritual to show kindness to a stranger, your family or even yourself.
