Unwrap the candy canes and place them up against each into a heart shape. Place them on a surface that can not only withsatand the heat but that has a nonstick surface. I used a baking sheet with a silpat mat on top of it.
Gently heat up the joining points of the candy cane heart. If you place direct heat in any one spot for too long it will discolor. Immediately push the joining points together until set.
