A friend and I whipped up a batch of this lately. Yowza. The cautions above are merited. I’m no fan of Hot Tamales, but this goes down awfully easy.

Couple of things: mixing in club soda, at least 1:1, makes it even better – in my case, a lime flavored (infused?) soda, which I figured would “clash,” didn’t. Also, gets one to thinking what other candies would be interesting infusions. Worth a read on this topic, from the NY Times: http://tinyw.in/QvkC. Mmm, bacon.

I like the club soda addition – makes it go farther and probably doesn’t reduce the fun at all.
