How to Make Cupid Arrow Candy

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make the cupid arrow candy:

Supplies for Cupid Arrow Candy

Here are the steps needed to make your DIY cupid arrow heart: 

1. First, to make the feathers, cut the sour belts into 1 inch pieces. Then cut out a small triangle on one end and cut out the opposite triangle shape on the other (see below image for visual). To make the feathers, cut slits in between.

2. Next you need to melt your pink candy melts in the microwave. Follow the package instructions.

PRO TIP: I find that if you microwave for less time and stir to melt you won’t overcook your candy melts. Start off with only 20 seconds and add 5-10 second increments to melt.

3.  Once you have your melted candy melts, you can now dip in your pretzel sticks! If not too hot, this would be fun for the kids to do! Just make sure to check the temperature first yourself so they don’t burn their hands. Dip each pretzel stick and then place on parchment paper.

4.  Now it’s time to add your arrow head and feathers! Add one of the gummy hearts and feathers to each dipped pretzel stick. Allow to dry for 10 minutes before picking up.
