Impress your Thanksgiving guests with an unexpected twist on a holiday staple. Try something new this year with this cranberry sauce with a sweet twist.


20 oz Cranberries, fresh or frozen (5 cups)
1 cup Orange Juice
½ cup Water
¾ cup Sugar
1 Cinnamon stick
10 RED VINES® Original Twistschopped into ½-inch pieces


Rinse and drain the cranberries and pick out any undesirable pieces.

Place a large skillet over medium heat and pour in the orange juice, water, and sugar. Bring to a gentle simmer and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the cinnamon stick and turn heat to medium-low.

Add the cranberries to the skillet and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until most of the cranberries have broken down and the mixture has thickened. In the last 3 minutes of cooking, add the Red Vines Original Twists to the skillet. Remove from heat and discard the cinnamon stick.

Transfer the Red Licorice Cranberry Sauce to a serving bowl and garnish with orange zest. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
