Candy Cane Chocolate Hearts

candy cane hearts

Here is a super easy (and tasty) treat you can make in minutes. I think these would be gorgeous bagged up little cellophane bags tied with pretty ribbon.
They would also be an easy activity to do with children on the school holidays.

What you will need:
Candy canes - if you want to make 10 hearts, you'll need 20 candy canes
White chocolate
Dark chocolate
Sprinkles or non-pareils

What to do:
Unwrap all your candy canes and place them in the shape of a heart on baking paper.
Heat chocolate and spoon into the centre of the hearts. Be sure to fill all the little nooks.
I made all of mine with dark chocolate base and topped some with white choc as well.
Sprinkle with your choice of non-pareils an let set. Note that white chocolate takes a little longer to set than dark choc.

Now, nibble on them with a friend with a good cup of coffee or give as a sweet gift this Christmas.
