With Red Vines® Candy





  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg

  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

01. Prep the Syrup


Combine all the ingredients for the syrup in a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat and allow the sauce to simmer and thicken for 15 minutes. It won’t get super thick, but this allows the flavors to really extract from the ingredients.

Remove the cloves and cinnamon stick.
