Peppermint Hearts

I'm glad to see Candy Canes are catching on here in England.  A few years back they where hard to find.  This year I spotted them on the Christmas aisle in Sainsburys and grabbed a few boxes.  I've got a couple of peppermint recipes brewing in my brain for this year.  This first one is a very quick and easy but delicious treat.  Hearts made of White Chocolate and Peppermint.

To make these you'll need for each heart:

2 peppermint candy canes
1 oz of fine quality white chocolate
and some parchment paper

Unwrap your 2 candy canes and break off a bit at the end to shorten them so that they will form a nice heart shape.

 Arrange your candy canes onto the parchment paper into a heart shape.
 Take the bits you broke off and place them in a bowl.  Crush them into small pieces with the bottom of a glass.

 Melt 1oz of white chocolate and spoon into the centre of the heart shape.
 Top with the crushed bits of candy.
