Ingredients

  • 24

    mini candy canes

  • 12

    6-inch lollipop sticks

  • 1

    cup white candy coating, like CandiQuik

  • Sprinkles

Directions

Preheat oven to 300°F. On a parchment lined baking sheet, arrange the candy canes as hearts with the lollipop stick centered in between the two candy canes from top to bottom. Bake for 3 minutes. You want them to be malleable, but not melted. Remove from oven and shape candy canes into hearts by pinching the bottom of the heart into the stick and pinching the top ends together. You can also pull the edges out to make the hearts more round and full. They will be hot and 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. Melt candy coating in the microwave at 30 second intervals on medium power, stirring between heatings, until smooth. Spoon the melted candy coating into the center of each heart, then top with sprinkles. Cool the pops before serving or wrapping.
