Candy Cane heart shaped lollipop. Could do this for valentines, Xmas Christmas yule, anniversary, or even a birthday if they really like peppermint. Just bake at 300F for 3 minutes, then quickly shape like a heart around a lollipop sucker stick. You could fill the suckers with white chocolate and sprinkles too, but I like just the plain candy cane sucker hollow in the middle.
