If you see any of these boxes of miniature candy canes on clearance, snap them up! Why? You can make these darling hearts for Valentine's Day!
I found this lonely box in a clearance grocery cart. What a steal!
But I can't take credit for this cute idea. I saw the idea on Skip to My Lou, who turned these into candy cane heart shaped suckers....
It is incredibly easy...unwrap all the candy canes and arrange them into hearts on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for about 5 minutes. Watch closely, so they don't melt too much...when cool enough to handle, pinch the ends together.
Don't forget the middle...but be careful! It may be hot! Have a bowl of cold water handy...
Let them cool completely on the baking sheet before removing.
I felt like a cup of hot chocolate this cold morning. Will this sink or float? You'll have to find out for yourself and see!
