Upcycle your Christmas candy canes into sweet DIY Candy Heart Lollipops with a Wagner heat gun.

Tools & Materials for Making Candy Heart Pops

  • Wagner FURNO Heat Gun
  • 12 candy canes in various styles
  • Sharp paring knife
  • Paint brush
  • 2 cups white melting chocolate
  • Colorful candy sprinkles
  • Parchment paper
  • 6 lollipop sticks

STEP 1:

Arrange two candy canes in a heart shape on a clean surface.

STEP 2:

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.

STEP 3:

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.

STEP 4:

Pour melted white chocolate into the middle of the heart.

STEP 5:

Sprinkle the melted chocolate with colorful sugars and jimmies. Let harden for two hours.

Tie with ribbon or shrink wrap in plastic using the heat gun.
