We’ve gone a bit crazy with Valentine’s ideas these last couple of days.  In case you missed it, head back over here to see a Valentine’s Day breakfast idea with pink heart pancakes!  We also have a fun decoration too.  Be sure to stroll over and see our Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath!  It’s super simple and yet elegant and fun to look at!   And we’ve got plenty more crafts coming up so stay tuned!

Here are our fun Valentine’s Day Lollipops made from candy canes.  These are made with the super small candy canes and red chocolate melts.

Pro Tip:  We found the Wilton Candy melts work the best for melting chocolate.  We love the vibrant red color we got!  Feel free to use pink or white too.  You could also crush up a candy cane and add it to the mixture instead of sprinkles too.

Recipe type: Dessert
Valentine’s Day Lollipops made from candy canes
Ingredients
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Small Candy Canes
  • Red Chocolate melts
  • Wax Paper
  • Optional: Ribbon and treat bags
  • Optional: Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. First lay out all the heart designs on wax paper with a lollipop stick.
  2. Once all your designs are out then melt the chocolate. Don’t melt the chocolate before you lay out the designs because it will harden before you are able to add it.
  3. Use a spoon and carefully add small spoonfuls to your heart.
  4. Be careful not to move them until they have hardened which only takes about 30 minutes or so.
  5. Once they have hardened simple pull them from the paper and wrap them in a treat bag for gift giving.
  6. Enjoy
