Chocolate Candy Cane Hearts

I found this great idea over at Pleasant Home (which is a new to me blog). It's so quick and easy you could make absolutely still make these in time for Sunday.

I've used candy canes to make hearts before. Usually I use a food safe glue to stick two canes together. (they make great gift embellishments for Valentine's) but I'd never thought to make fill them with chocolate like this- Brilliant!

Not only did I get the candy canes on super sale (44 cents) but I was able to find pink and purple colored ones that taste that strawberry and wild berry!

I made two sizes one using two full candy canes and the other where I cut the straight part of the cane down to make a more traditional shaped. (That was hubby's idea and it worked great.)

To decorate them I added red sugar sprinkles, almonds, mini red M&M's and crushed up candy cane.

The ones shown on pleasant home used mini canes and made them into cute little lollipops. maybe next year I'll get an extra box of mini canes and try it that way.

Seriously 20 minutes tops- and these were done! I just got my candy canes last week so they're still out there (I guess that's one benefit to a slow holiday shopping season). You can get the instruction here.
