Recipe by Old widow

I found this in a Christmas cookie cookbook years ago and have been making them for christmas ever since. They are simple to make and really look pretty on a cookie tray. I usually buy white chocolate chips, and quite a bit more than the recipe calls for, instead of the candy coating called for because I like a little thicker, richer tasting center. These hold really well and can be made at least a week in advance. Cooking time includes cooling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 mini peppermint candy canes (2 1/2 inches each)
  • 5 ounces white chocolate or 5 ounces white candy coating
  • 2 teaspoons crushed peppermint candy canes


  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Arrange candy canes on wax paper in groups of 2 with ends touching to form hearts.
  2. Melt white chocolate in microwave.
  3. Spoon melted chocolate into center of each heart. Sprinkle with crushed candy.
  4. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes.
