Candy Cane Valentine Lollipops

Candy Cane Valentine Lollipops | A Diamond in the Stuff

While perusing blogland I came upon a post about candy cane Valentine lollipops over at Pleasant Home. I immediately thought about that box of leftover mini candy canes I had sitting around. I had been thinking about what I was going to do with them, I was also thinking about what my daughter would give to her friends at school for her Valentine’s Day party. Light bulb!!!

I gathered up my supplies:
Mini Candy Canes
White Candy Melts
Lollipop sticks
Sprinkles
Wax paper
A Ziploc bag (I used gallon sized)

First, I layed out all of the candy canes in heart shapes on the wax paper. Then I inserted the lollipop sticks mid way into the heart. Next I melted the candy melts by placing them in a Ziploc bag and microwaving them until melted.

I cut the corner off of the Ziploc bag and “piped” the melted candy into the hearts, making sure to get a fairly even coverage.

As you can see, some hearts are shaped differently just depending on how the candy canes were shaped.

While the melted candy was still wet I added some red sprinkles for a little extra sparkle!

  2. I really like this. They are sooo cute!!!!!

  3. Looks fun. I’ve also seen where you put the candy canes in the oven for a bit first to heat them so you can squeeze them together and then they stick better to your sticks. Peppermint and chocolate always goes good together.

  4. seriously LOVE this idea!

  5. Do you still have the bag of candy melts? I was thinking of doing something like this for my class but I have a student who is allergc to all dairy and eggs… So I was wondering if the candy melts contained dairy products…before I drove all the way across town to buy them! If they don’t, this would be a super project to do for them!

  6. @ Sarah: Yes, they do have milk in them.

  7. Thats too bad! It is such a cute idea, thanks for sharing it (and all of your other ideas) with us!
