Chocolate heart candy canes are the easiest, festive treat for your holiday dessert table!
You’re gonna love how fun and easy it is to make candy cane hearts! Peppermint and chocolate combine into one delicious and beautiful Christmas treat!
Candy cane hearts: combining three of my favorite things of all time: sweets, the holidays, and love!!! (Okay, there are like a billion more wonderful things on that favorites list, but I’m doing a bit here!!) 😉
Chocolate heart candy canes: the same thing, but with a slightly different name. Today, we’re gonna kick off the Christmastime/holiday season with a super fun ‘n easy treat that includes candy canes, chocolate, and your festive heart.
I mean, how cute are these candy cane hearts?!?!? I kinda think they’d go so well with our fresh-baked vegan cinnamon cookies from last week, don’t you?
You ready? Let’s jingle all the way into each others’ candy cane hearts. 🙂
What are Candy Cane Hearts? Chocolate Heart Candy Canes?
Candy cane hearts are a sweet treat that’s usually homemade and made with about 2-4 ingredients.
Otherwise known as chocolate heart candy canes, these festive Christmas candies combine two mini candy canes with a chocolate heart center to form a beautiful holiday treat.
2 Ingredient Candy Cane Hearts
- Mini Candy Canes – I like to use these organic candy canes.
- Chocolate – try vegan chocolate chips or, to cut down on sugar, keto chocolate chips.
How to Make a Candy Cane Heart
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
Unwrap two candy canes and lay them on the prepared sheet, flat and facing each other to create a heart shape. Repeat for all candy canes.
Melt chocolate. Pipe chocolate into the center of each candy cane heart until filled. If needed, press candy canes back together.
Chill until firm. Then, enjoy the season with a sweet and minty delight!
