Occ things you do on pure impulse turn out to be neat surprises. I got 1 of those surprises last nite when DH and I decided to have a simple fruit salad for dinner. I made it, looked at it and then thought ... BORING! I wanted to do something to make it an esp tasty and out of the ordinary attention-getter. I was sorting thru my cupboard, ran across some red hot cinnamon candies I had just brought back from the US and I decided my search was over. Before you scoff and move on to the next recipe, I gotta tell you this is really good, has a great holiday look and would also be good for a unique pot-luck dish. My bet is it will have your family begging for this fruit salad or even thinking of it as a dessert. Time does not include refrigeration time.
