Slim Hot Cinnamon Pear Sundaes

Makes 6 Servings


  • RED HOT CINNAMON SAUCE (Yield: 16–1 Tbsp servings)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup (6-1/2 ounces) cinnamon red-hot candies
  • 1 can (15 ounces) Bartlett pears, sliced and drained
  • 1-1/2 pints vanilla or strawberry frozen yogurt, fat-free, no added sugar

    In a medium saucepan combine sugar, water and candies; bring mixture to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium; boil mixture for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool at least 20 minutes before using, or cool, then cover and refrigerate to store. To make sundaes, scoop ice cream into 6 dessert dishes. Slice pears to allow an equal number of slices per sundae; spoon slices over frozen yogurt. Spoon Red Hot Cinnamon Sauce over ice cream; sprinkle with more cinnamon candies. Serve immediately. Store leftover sauce in refrigerator.
