Make your own candy cane lollipops with miniature candy canes and chocolate chips. Great for kids to make and give as Christmas treats to friends and neighbors!
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
- Mini candy canes
- 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!
If you’re looking for a festive holiday treat that your kids can make (or help make), this is a good one!
