Valentine's Day Candy Cane Hearts

My sister-in-law made these for my kids last year, so I thought I'd give them a try.
Valentine's Day Candy Cane Hearts
You start with mini-candy canes (left over from Christmas):
Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, facing each other, so it looks like a heart.
Then bake them at 300 degrees for about 5 minutes.
Mine looked like this:
(I had to use a spoon and push the edges back together because some of them melted apart)
You can also try filling them with white or dark chocolate chips:
When you pull them out of the oven, use a spoon to spread the melted chocolate around.
Make sure it fills the entire center of the heart.
Then sprinkle the melted chocolate with Valentine's Day sprinkles.
They turn out so cute and make the perfect little Valentine's Day treat.
You can also put a lollipop stick in them when you first pull them out of the oven and make them into heart shaped lollipops.  I think the chocolate filled ones taste like peppermint bark.
It's a fun craft to make with kids because it is so easy and so quick!
Have fun!
