Christmas Treats | Candy Cane HeartsWednesday, November 26, 2014
Welcome to part two of my Christmas Treats series with Stephanie from Tragic Wardrobe! If you missed our treats last week then check out these posts on how to make Peppermint Bark and Caramel Hot Chocolate.
Today, I want to share one of my absolute favourite Christmas treats - Candy Cane Hearts! They are another super easy and delicious treat that also packs a punch in the adorable department. You just can't beat miniature candy cane hearts!
This recipe is really truly fool proof, it only requires a few key ingredients and only takes a few minutes to make. It's perfect for parties or even to make as a DIY gift for family and friends!
- Miniature Candy Canes
- 8oz White Chocolate Chips
-Green & Red Sprinkles
- 4" or 6" Lollipop Sticks
- Baking Sheet
- Parchment Paper
- Cooking Spray
Step 1 - Fill a small pot with water and bring it to a boil, place your white chocolate chips in a bowl and place that over the pot and let it warm up. Once you see the chips start to melt begin to stir them gently. The constant mixing will make sure they melt evenly and after a couple of minutes you will have fully melted chocolate.
Step 2 - Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and give it a quick spray with cooking oil - you can always use coconut oil or another substitute.
Step 3 - Take 2 mini candy canes and place them together to make a heart, then place a lollipop stick in between the candy canes at the base of the heart.
Step 4 - While holding the candy canes in place, spoon the melted chocolate into the middle.
Step 5 - While still warm, add your sprinkles or whatever other decorations you want to use.
Step 6 - Place the tray in the freezer for 2 - 24 hours depending on when you want to dig in!
Step 7 - To serve, gently pop the hearts off of the parchment paper and arrange them on a platter or in a festive mug!
Another super simple but delicious festive treat that will definitely add a little bit of cheer to a Christmas celebration! Now head on over to Tragic Wardobe to learn how to make Stephanie's Christmas Tree Brownies!
