And these candy cane hearts are easy to make too. (That’s the theme here!) Once the chocolate coating sets, just put them in a small cellophane gift bag, add a holiday tie or ribbon at the bottom of the heart, and you have a wonderful gift that is almost too pretty to eat.

Candy cane heart lollipop recipe

Yields 12

Prep time: 20 minutes | Inactive time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 3 minutes | Total time: 53 minutes


  • 24 mini candy canes

  • 2 squares Almond Bark vanilla baking bars, melted
  • 1/4 cup candy sprinkles

  1. On a large piece of parchment paper, lay 2 candy canes with the top of each one facing the other to form a “heart” shape.
  2. Put a lollipop stick in between the candy canes at the bottom of the “heart” (about 1 inch inside the heart shape).

  5. Repeat with the remaining candy canes, and set aside until the chocolate completely hardens (about 25 to 30 minutes).
