Hey Mom, I Want Some Red Hot Fruit Salad!

Recipe by twissis
READY IN: 15mins


  • 2
    cups seedless grapes (I used a mix of red & green)
  • 12
    cup raisins
  • 2
    fresh oranges (peeled & sectioned, I had clementines on hand & used 3 of them)
  • 1
    (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple (well-drained)
  • 1
    kiwi (peeled & diced)
  • 12
    cup yoghurt (I used caramel flavor, but use vanilla just as often)
  • 14
    cup red-hot candies
  • 2
    bananas (sliced in 1/2 in slices)


  • Combine yoghurt, red-hot candies & raisins. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs, stirring at 30 min intervals.
  • Prepare & combine the remaining fruit ingredients in a bowl when nearly ready to serve. Add the bananas last.
  • Add the yoghurt, red-hots & raisin mix to the fruit. Stir well & refrigerate till ready to serve, but is best if served soon after mixing.
  • NOTES: A variety of fresh seasonal or canned fruits can be used w/equal success. The above was just what I had on hand. - Refrigeration time is important as it softens the candy & releases the cinnamon flavor & color. They will fully dissolve w/longer refrigeration time. Add chopped pecans or walnuts as an option & enjoy!
  • CAUTION: You will want to eat this sauce w/a spoon & forget about the fruit! Pls try to resist this temptation. Your family will love you for it.
