We’re spelling LOVE with our left over Holiday candy canes. I posted last year how to make Candy Cane Hearts, so this year for Valentines I thought we’d shape them into Love Letters.

  • Take off the plastic on your candy canes. It doesn’t matter if these break from opening, as they need to be all different sizes anyway.
  • Place the candy cane pieces onto a tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Put the tray into a 250 degree oven for 10 minutes.

  • Shape them (be careful, hot) right out of the oven. They are movable for a minute or two. You can put them back into the oven if you need to reshape them again.
  • Some letters kept breaking, so you can just use them as lines and form the letters that way as well.

UPDATE: check out The Melton Point blog to see how she used a skewer to make a hole in these to hang with ribbon!
