About

You can make sorbet from anything, so let your imagination go wild. I was planning a dinner just days before Valentine’s Day and I thought it would be a hoot and really interesting to make a sorbet from Cinnamon Red Hots. You know- you had them when you were a kid. They’re much harder to find than they used to be- but they’re still available. You can add them to hot cocoa, applesauce or hot pickles, but I love them in this spicy and simple sorbet!
