Unwrap the candy canes and cut a couple of inches off the bottoms with kitchen scissors.

On the waxed paper or parchment paper, arrange two candy canes side-by-side as pictured to make a heart shape, cut the straws in half (or just use a lollipop stick) and place them in the bottom center with about 1/2″ inside the “heart”.

Melt the chocolate, and then spread it into the heart shapes carefully with a spoon. Make sure it covers the straw well so that it will hold when cooled. Have your little one sprinkle the hearts to their heart’s content before the chocolate cools.

If you have leftover chocolate, you can spread it out (about 1/2″ thick) on a piece of waxed paper, crush the remaining pieces of the candy canes, and sprinkle them on the chocolate to make “Valentine Bark”.
