I heard this from across the room during one of the morning news programs. It caught my attention but I didn't catch all the details. After some trial and error (read candy cane puddles! LOL!), I got it to work. I swear I originally heard 350°F but that seemed too hot (if you do use this temp, please watch your hearts carefully to ensure they don't melt all over the place). DS thinks this is great and was very excited to make these. And this is something to do with your leftover candy canes, especially if they make it to Valentine's Day. Stick them in cupcakes or to stir some cocoa or whatever you please. NOTE: this is based on using the mini candy canes. I'm sure the time will increase if you do this with regular size ones.
