To make this warming Cinnamon Fondue, which is perfect for fall, you will need:
- 6 cups light corn flour
- 4 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup cinnamon candy (such as Red Hots)
To make the Cinnamon Fondue…
Bring the corn syrup, sugar, and water to a boil then add the cinnamon candies.
Boil the mixture until it reaches 220°F on a candy thermometer.
