DIY Valentine’s Day Candy
Upcycle your Christmas candy canes into sweet DIY Candy Heart Lollipops with a Wagner heat gun.
Use a heat gun to transform your old Christmas candy into unique Valentine's Day lollipop candies.
Form a heart
Arrange two candy canes in a heart shape on a clean surface.
Heat ends and cut
Heat the straight ends of the candy canes on low heat for 30 seconds. With a sharp paring knife, carefully cut about 1 inch off the end of each candy cane.
Heat and press together
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.
Pour in the chocolate
Pour melted white chocolate into the middle of the heart.
Sprinkle sugar and allow to harden
Sprinkle the melted chocolate with colorful sugars and jimmies. Let harden for two hours.
Packing them up
Tie with ribbon or shrink wrap in plastic using the heat gun.
