Red Hot Cranberry Sauce

Sooo, in another life I was a special education teacher and boy did I love it.  Then babies arrived and I decided to be a stay at home mommy for awhile.  While I was a teacher one of the Adapted Physical Education teachers gave me this recipe for cranberry sauce (hi Karen!).

Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz bag cranberry sauce
  • 5 0.9 oz boxes of red hots or about half of a 9 oz bag
  • ⅓-1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 small can mandarin oranges, drained well
Instructions
  1. Place the cranberries, red hots, and sugar in a medium sauce pan and heat over medium heat until the cranberries burst and the sauce is thick and jam like. Note on the sugar: I used ½ a cup of sugar and the cranberry sauce was very sweet.  If you want it less sweet, lean more toward ⅓ of a cup of sugar.
  2. Add in the drained oranges.
  3. Eat!
