Peppermint Bark Heart Lollipops...

Hello my crafty friends! Today is a Craft Junkie Too Design Team Project day!!!! We were asked to create a last minute Christmas gift idea! So, I whipped up some lollipops for my friends and family! I saw the idea of large candy cane peppermint bark, 2 years ago, and kept saying I needed to make these! Well, this year I had the chance and I decided to make them into peppermint bark lollipops!
 I used small candy canes and placed them into a heart shape onto a lollipop stick.
 I put them in the oven at 250 for 4  1/2 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven carefully pinch the candy canes together, this will create a seal.
 ***Side note...any candy canes that are broken, you have to eat! It's not my rule, but it's the rule! ;)
 Next, I broke up some baking chocolate and put it in a baggie. I warmed the chocolate up in the microwave in 20 second intervals.
 Then cut a small hole in the tip of the baggie.
 Put a small layer of chocolate in the bottom of each heart.
 I did the same steps with the vanilla candy coating and then put sprinkles on top of each heart.
 I put them in the fridge to set up.
 Then I typed "From my heart to yours! Merry Christmas! Kristy" and printed them out onto card stock.
 Cut the paper in half.

 Fold them in half and cut out a triangle shape, to turn them into flags.

Put a small cello bag onto the heart pop, tie with a piece of twine, add glue to the tag, put it around the stick, and tie the twine into a bow!

 I think they turned out pretty cure and they have been super fun to hand out!

 Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!!
