Candy Cane heart suckers

I just love this idea from The Idea Room . Such adorable candy cane heart suckers with a full tutorial AND a crazy exciting feature in Family Fun magazine. How awesome would that be?!

I attempted to make these heart suckers last year with some larger candy canes and it didn't work as well as I had wanted (see my results here ). So this year, I got some smaller candy canes after Christmas and have come to the conclusion that candy making isn't for me.
Most of my candy canes ended up looking like this. Broken hearts in a ziploc bag (I'm feeling the future title of a country song, aren't you?). Bummer...
But I did manage to make a few that stayed together. Pretty sure I am going to leave the candy making to the professionals!

I really don't think they look bad at all! Glad you were able to salvage some! Sorry they didn't turn out! Maybe your oven is a lot hotter than mine:). I always like to find something to blame it on! Thanks for sharing!
