DIY Candy Cane Chocolate Bark Hearts

I love eating holiday candy which is why today's DIY has my mouth watering! It's DIY Candy Cane Chocolate Bark in the shape of Hearts! How cute, right?! Let's get started.

You will need:
- Mini candy canes
- Chocolate melts (Optional colors, but since this involves candy canes and this DIY is Christmas-y themed, I'd use Christmas color chocolate melts...)
- Sprinkles!
- Microwave
- Microwavable bowls
- Metal Cookie Sheet

1. Place two candy canes on the cookie sheet in the shape of a heart. (You can do this with multiple candy canes, you just need two to make the heart shape.)
2. Melt the chocolate melts in the bowls.
3. Pour the chocolate into the candy cane hearts.
4. Sprinkle on some Sprinkles!

Wait fifteen minutes or until the chocolate is completely hardened. You can put them in your refrigerator to speed up the process.
