Candy Cane Hearts

As I mentioned on my Ten Things of Thankful post this past weekend, I made a bunch of candy cane hearts last week.  My friend found the idea from pinterest, and taught us how to make the treats at Relief Society.




The original post my friend found is here, but we made a few minor changes.  

These are sooo easy to make!  The hardest part is staying within the lines of the candy canes, but even that is not too difficult.  

You will need:
miniature candy canes
waxed paper or a silicone baking mat
almond bark, in vanilla and chocolate
sprinkles

Arrange the candy canes on the waxed paper or baking mat to form hearts.  Melt the almond bark according to package directions.  (Zap a couple of squares in the microwave for about a minute and stir.  If needed, microwave longer in 15 second increments.)  Using a small spoon (I found I was most successful using a baby spoon), put the melted almond bark inside each heart.  Sprinkle with sprinkles, and allow to cool.  Within minutes, your hearts will be ready to eat!

I'm thankful for quick, easy treat ideas, for pinterest, for friends, for Relief Society, and for Christmas!

  2. I've seen these so many times - always wanted to make them. Can't now because of Zilla's food dye issues. We do get dye-free canes for her, but they don't come in mini size. :(

  5. Because I never seem to have enough to do (ha!), I will probably try this in the next few days...I have to wait until closer to the last minute as each time my youngest son comes to visit, he steals a candy cane. I have a tree in the entrance and have replaced the candy canes three times!

    I love visiting you, I always leave with a smile on my face!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: August Arrives!

A wild sunflower shows its cheery yellow petals My teacher friends are preparing to return to the classroom, whatever that looks like in their district. In any other year, I would be getting excited about BYU's Education Week. 2020 isn't like any other year, though, is it? Ed Week has been postponed to a date TBA and changed to an online format. While I am happy that I am getting projects done around the house, and I'm generally content to live the life of a hermit, I'm literally dreaming of going to Disneyland, which makes me think I must be getting a little case of cabin fever. (I'm not usually a big dreamer, or if I am, I don't usually remember my dreams. This one was particularly funny, I thought: I was in line to get into Disneyland. In front of me in line were the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Cook was having trouble and his ticket wasn't scanning. I said to the cast member, "He's OK.

Ten Things of Thankful: #GeneralConference Anticipation

  Jesus Christ stands in an crowd of kneeling worshippers, with the caption "Peace be unto you."  source In last week's post, I expressed gratitude for some things that hadn't actually happened yet, but that I hoped would soon. This week, I'm thankful that some of those things have happened--and I'm still holding out hope that the others will. In addition, I'm thankful in advance for other events.  To revisit last's week's anticipatory items: My air purifier was repaired, the company sent it back to me, and I'm thankful for clean air. The car wash company accepted responsibility for the accident, have authorized a check to be written to the repair company, and I'm thankful I have an appointment scheduled for the new bumper to be installed. The shop did get the van repaired, though not in time for me to renew the tags before the end of September. However, I'm thankful that the state of Utah offers a temporary registration for only $6 whi
