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: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
