Wondering what to do with all of those left-over mini-candy canes? Here is a fun idea that is perfect for Valentine’s Day and the perfect Valentines treat! To make these heart shaped suckers, take two mini candy canes and place them together on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Place a sucker stick between the bottoms of each. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes.
Be careful and watch closely as some ovens may vary. Remove them from the oven as soon as they begin to blister and melt a bit, like the picture below.
As soon as you remove them from the oven, pinch the ends of the candy canes together to cover the sucker stick. Also pinch the top of the canes together. Do this very carefully for they are very HOT! I used a kitchen knife to help shape mine so I would not get burned. Let them cool completely before removing them from the sheet. These would make a fun gift for those on your Valentine gift list or as cute cupcake toppers.
