Christmas Valentine Candy

What a great use of Christmas Candy! I have seen this in the past and wanted to try it forever. So took the time to make up these with the left over candy canes from Christmas. Who'da thunk it!

Oven at 300 degrees. Lay parchment paper on cookie tray. Be sure it is flat, or your melted candy will be curled up. Lay out your candy canes in a heart shape with points and centers touching. Be sure to leave enough room for the lollipop sticks.

Put in oven for a short 5 minutes. Be sure the canes do not melt to much. Remove from oven and place lollipop sticks right in the bottom point of the melted heart shape. Work quickly and carefully as the candy is hot. Pinch the melted candy cane to the stick.

Melt some candy melts in color of your choice. I had white and pink (fitting huh?) To melt: put a few candies in a zip lock bag and zap for 30 seconds at a time, smooch around in bag to mix, melt and move to one bottom corner of baggie. Snip the tip of the bag and squeeze the melted yummy in the center of the heart. I smoothed and spread it out a bit with a tip of a knife.

Why of course add some cute sprinkles. Cuz just looking at them make everyone happy right?

 Wrap in clear cello bags found in a gazillion places on the net - BUT Stampin Up carries the best. Tie a ribbon on and here ya go Christmas Valentine Candy for all. Now if that doesn't say I love you... 

Pretty stinkin' cute huh!  Oh and ya - white chocolate mint - yumm!
