How to Make Candy Cane Lollipops

- Lollipop sticks
- Chocolate chips (whichever your preference is – milk, semi-sweet, dark, or even white!)
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Prep your materials
To get ready, unwrap the mini candy canes, put two together to make heart shapes on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and add lollipop sticks.
- Melt your chocolate
Use a double boiler or the microwave to melt your chocolate until it is pourable and spreadable. Then then drizzle the chocolate into the candy cane heart shape with a spoon.
- Add decorations!
Then, add your sprinkles or mini chocolate chips to decorate your lollipops!
- Let cool
Allow your lollipops to cool and harden completely. Then you can bag them up for treats to give out!
