Red Hot Apples in Wine

red-hot-apple2What can I say but I am a sucker for anything cinnamon, red and lemony. Toss in a sweet red wine and some crispy apples and it has to be a winner.

Many years ago I came across this recipe and fell in love with it until this day. I have not made it in years but sifting through my recipe box this popped up.

Just at the right time. Cold, dreary weather here in the valley. Well this was enough to warm your heart and make the whole house smell wonderful all at the same time.

What was the hooking ingredient for this recipe?
Old time RED HOTS … those little bright red round candies I use to love to crunch up in the movie matinee.

My husband found them at Walmart and am happy to say I now have a pantry supply :)

  3. We found the Red Hots at Walmart in the candy section. You could probably substitute cinnamon oil if you can not find the red hots.
