Last year I saw this great tutorial on how to make candy cane hearts for Valentine's Day. I was so excited about it and thought it would be a quick and easy thing for my kids to make and take to school. Well, I waited just a bit too long and when I went to the stores to look for the candy canes I came up with nothing, nada, zilch. I was bummed. They were completely sold out and there wasn't a candy cane to be found.
Well, this year I remembered to grab a few boxes of mini candy canes found in the clearance aisle for 60 cents during my after Christmas sale shopping trip. I made a bunch of these this morning and was pleased with how easy (and super fast) they came together. I thought I would post about it today in case you too want to make some for Valentine's Day. This way you can all take advantage of the holiday clearance candy canes while they are still in the stores and save them until you are ready to make them. Don't wait too long or they may not be around in February. Trust me, I speak from experience.
