Updated October 2021

Are you wondering what to do with all of the candy canes that seem to accumulate at home this time of year? Perhaps you’re looking for a fun and easy treat to make for teachers, friends, or neighbors.

Well, these candy cane lollipops are just what you need! They are easy enough to make that your kids can be involved, don’t require many ingredients, and are super fun to decorate!

The idea came from Sharnel at My Life – My Loves (via Pinterest of course!).  We simply added lollipop sticks to turn them into lollipops.

How to Make Candy Cane Lollipops



  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Let cool

    Allow your lollipops to cool and harden completely. Then you can bag them up for treats to give out!
