Step 1: Things You Will Need
Ok step one is getting out the pots, candy canes, and other stuff.
now you will need:
two pots (the double boiler)
mini candy canes
pampered chef chopper (if you don't have one a spoon will work or something else)
2 1/2 cups (if your using all of the mini candy canes then use 3 cups) chocolate chips (I would try chocolate wafers )
and a measureing cup.
Step 2: First Things First
Now you take your chocolate chips
and then pour 2 1/2 cups into the pot.
Next, pour the water in the second pot ( the double boiler) about half way.
Step 3: Crush the Candy Canes
Get ready to chop up some candy canes.
O.k. you will want to chop about 6 candy canes.
Once you did that put the pot with the chocolate chips
and put it in the pot that has water in it. Then, put it on the burner
set the burner close to boil.
Step 4: Hearts
While you are waiting for the chocolate chips to melt
take out your waxpaper. Cut a sheet then take your candy canes
and make a heart shape with them.
Step 5: Chocolate & Peppermint
Ok check on your chocolate chips
and see if they are done melting.
If done melting take it off the burner (don't forget to turn off the burner).
Then take your spoon and pour your
chocolate in the candy cane hearts.
Then take your crushed candy canes
and pour a little of the crushed candy cane in the chocolate
heart. Lastly, take your spoon and mix it up and wait for it to harden.
Step 6: Done!
Yes, you're finally done! So enjoy your peppermint hearts.
