Candy Cane Hearts

Cute, creative and delicious Candy Cane Hearts!

So cute and creative! Candy Cane Hearts by GloriousTreats.com

These cute Candy Cane Hearts are one of my favorite simple Christmas treats!  They’re a perfect addition to a plate of Christmas cookies, and so simple they are a project the kids can help with too.  These Candy Cane Hearts make cute little gifts or classroom treats!

You’ll need…

A box of mini candy canes (see “note” below)

White Chocolate, Vanilla Candiquick or similar

Semi-sweet Chocolate, Chocolate Candiquick or similar

Sprinkles

~Directions ~

1.  Place waxed paper or a Silpat type liner on a baking sheet.

2.  Lay two mini candy canes next to each other, creating a heart.  Continue filling the baking sheet with heart shapes.

3.  Melt the white and semi-sweet chocolates (in separate bowls), using short intervals in the microwave, or in a double boiler.

4.  When the chocolates are melted, spoon or pour into a piping bag or thicker ziplock type bag. Cut off a tiny tip from the bag, and begin filling in the heart shapes with chocolate.  I like to use both flavors of chocolate for each heart.  So if I do a layer of white chocolate first, then after it cools a bit, I add a layer of semi-sweet chocolate on top.

5.  After adding both layers of chocolate, top with sprinkles of your choice.

6.  Set the baking sheet (of chocolate filled hearts) in a cool place (for me this is on top of the washer in the garage) while the chocolate cools. Once cool, remove hearts from baking sheet and store in an airtight container.

NOTE-  I have found that the candy canes that work best for this project are ones with a dull finish (not shiny).  It seems candy canes with a shiny surface tend to get sticky after a day or two.

Enjoy!

    So perfect for Christmas, but I could also see these resurrected in a couple of months for Valentine's Day with the white chocolate tinted pink or red. :)

    I saw these posted on Create w/TLC website and actually thought that they were brownies in the center. I am not a cook/baker so forgive my ignorance. Nevertheless, they look yummmmmy! TFS!

    Love this idea, but every single mini candy cane broke in the process of removing the plastic. I was being careful, but it still it got frustrating. Any helpful hints? I cut off the ends of the plastic with scissors and carefully tried removing the plastic, but they still broke.

    My daughter made the candy cane hearts. The candy canes are sticky. Why?

    • Glory replied: — December 9th, 2013 @ 3:27 am

      Hi Erma, I have found that sometimes candy canes that have a more shiny surface do tend to get sticky. Try to look for candy canes with a dull surface and you may have better luck! Humidity in the air can also be a factor, if it’s very humid where you are you may want to try and package them up as quickly as they are set.

    Great idea Glory! These are so cute. If the candy canes get sticky, I wonder if you could dust them with a bit of confectioner’s sugar.

    can you melt the candy disks for these?ordo you use chocolate chips for melting

    • Glory replied: — December 16th, 2014 @ 3:55 am

      I generally use chocolate baking bars or chocolate chips, but candy melts would work as well.

    I love these and made them the other day. I ran into a problem though, after taking the
    out of the refrigerator and off of the parchment paper. I had several candy canes break. Anyone have any ideas? Also, the stickiness went away after staying out at room temperature so that wasn’t a problem for me.
