I found these Adorable candy cane hearts on glorioustreats.blogspot.com. They're so cute and so simple to make! My favorite kind of crafty treat.
I think they're the perfect Christmas treat for my daughter's amazing school teacher.
Pick your candy canes, mini or large, I used large. Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Place candy canes on parchment paper and position into heart shapes.
For 2 large hearts, melt 1/3 bag white chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli) for 30 seconds at a time. White chocolate never fully melts to the same consistency as milk or dark chocolate without caking. So melt it carefully, mixing with a fork in between melting times until you get a spoonable consistency.
While chocolate is melting I like to crush one candy cane into a mixture of small chunks and powder.
Spoon chocolate into 1 heart at a time. If the candy canes move around, reposition them together and continue spreading until the chocolate is touching all interior sides of the heart.
Sprinkle with crushed candy canes. I also used white sugar crystals to give my hearts an extra fancy touch and sparkle!
Place cookie sheet into freezer for 10 minutes until chocolate has set. Take out of freezer and place on counter until the hearts reach room temperature.
Package as you wish! I'll be placing mine inside cellophane bags with ribbon to finish.
Smart Little Cookie Tip:
You can use any sprinkle your heart desires; jimmies, colored sugar sprinkles, crushed cookies...also, you could use milk or dark chocolate to fill the hearts.
