The correct one is 'can't'. It is what we call a 'contraction'. It is made from combining the two words 'Can' + 'Not'. We put the apostrophe ( ' ) where we dropped the letter (Got rid of 'o' so put an apostrophe there). 'Cann't' is not actually a word. When we write can't we drop one of the 'n' letters, I'm not sure why but that's just how it is.

You can say either CAN'T (one word/one syllable) or CANNOT (one word/two syllables with the stress on the second syllable). 'Cannot' is more formal than 'can't'. 'Cann't' does not exist.
