and spices to give it a good apple flavor.
You boil the red hots with a little bit of water to make a nice cinnamon sauce.
Well, I thought that it needed to cool a little bit,
so it didn’t melt my butter and affect the frosting consistency.
Red hots don’t stay liquid for very long when you only use a little bit of water.
I let it cool a few minutes and then poured it into my butter.
It turned clumpy right away.
I tried to make it work by beating it really hard.
Nope didn’t work, so into the trash it went.
It’s a good thing I stay stocked in butter…it was easy to start again.
This time as soon as the red hots were liquid, I poured it in and let my kitchen aid do the rest.
The cinnamon flavor is subtle without being overpowering.
It is enough of a red hot taste that you know it’s there and you know what it is.
Totally compliments the apple flavor in the whoopie pies.
I really want to make some more, but if I make them, I will eat them.
So I guess I will just drool over the pictures and remember how awesome they were.
