Preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit.
Lay candy canes in a heart shape on the mat. Place one starlight peppermint candy at the tip end of the “heart”. Cut a mini candy cane to create a “tree stump” and place at the opposite end of the heart.
Place in oven for about 3-5 minutes (please note, all ovens cook differently so you need to watch the candy and as soon as it get a little soft, remove from oven…. you can always put it back in for longer if needed)
ADULT STEP – As soon as it comes out of the oven (NOTE – BE VERY CAREFULLY because it will be very hot and you could burn yourself!!), shape the tree by straightening the “humps” of the heart into a straight line, press the “points” of the heart together with the peppermint candy and attach and pinch the tree stump to the tree.
Let cool completely and if you are using parchment paper, transfer to wax paper. If you are using the silicon mat, your can complete the next step on the mat, as well.
Melt the white chocolate wafers according to the directions on the package. Using a teaspoon, carefully spoon the white chocolate into the center of the tree.
Immediately scatter with the sprinkles of your choice. Happy Holidays!
