This is the easiest and most delicious recipe! What a great combination, right? My mom made this for us a lot this time of year. She always made her’s in the crock pot and it made the whole house smell good!
The only ingredients you’ll need are apple juice and red hots. Just a bottle of apple juice and a bag of red hots. That’s it!!
Easiest instructions ever too…just cook them together until the red hots are melted! I couldn’t make this one any easier if I tried.
I just cooked mine in a pot on medium heat. I did 5 cups of apple juice and 10 tablespoons of red hots. If you aren’t going to just use the whole bottle and whole bag, I think the 1 cup per 2 tablespoons ratio works well.
It takes less than 20 minutes for them to melt. I got distracted working on
other things santa cookies, so I didn’t really time mine. I just made sure to stir it every now and then.
I saved my apple juice container so I could store the leftovers in there and just heat some up in the microwave when I wanted another cup.
I don’t know why this simple little recipe is so tasty, but I’m not complaining. I hope you fall in love with its flavor and smell like I did!
