Arrange the cut candy canes on parchment paper and place a lollipop stick at the base of the candy cane heart. Heat the candy canes over low heat again for 1 minute until the candy becomes soft and bendable. With your fingertips, press the warmed candy together at the top and bottom of the heart to make a frame for the chocolate.
