Sweet Heart Pops

by Amy Huntley From FamilyFun Magazine

Spread some love on Valentine's Day by handing out these chocolate-filled candy canes.

Makes: 6 pops
Ingredients
  • 12 mini candy canes
  • 6 (6-inch) paper lollipop sticks
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • Red, white, and pink nonpareils or sugar sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 235°. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange the candy canes as hearts and bake them for 10 minutes.
  2. Slide the hearts, still on the parchment paper, onto a work surface. Quickly pinch each heart onto a lollipop stick as shown below (an adult's job).
  3. In the microwave, melt together the chocolate chips and the oil in 10-second intervals, stirring between heatings.
  4. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the center of each heart, then top with nonpareils or sugar sprinkles. Cool the pops before serving or wrapping them.
Tips:
We packaged our Sweet Heart Pops in lollipop bags purchased at a craft store.
