'Candy Cane Christmas Hearts'
Source: Adapted from Sprinkle Some Sunshine
24 mini candy canes
12 6" lollipop sticks
1 cup white candy coating
1. Heat oven to 300. On a parchment lined baking sheet, arrange the candy canes as hearts with the lollipop stick centered in between the two candy canes. Bake for 3 minutes...enough so they're malleable, but not melted.
2. Remove from oven and shape candy canes into hearts by pinching the bottom of the heart into the stick and pinching the top ends together. Carefully pull the sides out to make the hearts round and full. They will be hot, so you'll need to work quickly. If the candy canes harden before you have them all shaped, just stick them back in the oven for a couple of minutes. You may need to do this a few times.
3. Melt candy coating in the microwave at 30 second intervals on medium power, stirring between heating's, until smooth.
4. Spoon the melted candy coating into the center of each heart, then immediately top with sprinkles. Cool the pops in the fridge before serving or wrapping.
