I hope by now you are all well acquainted with the condiment known as Sriracha, but for those who aren't familiar, it's a delicious chili sauce that is sweet, hot and boasts a showy bright red-orange color. If you don't have a bottle in your fridge, you should probably go out and buy some right now. It's that good!
I've used it on everything from sushi to burgers, but never considered using it in sweets until I saw lollipops flavored with Sriracha. I decided to make my own. They were good; sweet at first and then -surprise! a little heat from the peppers made my tongue tingle.
