Chipotle cherry and mallow slices, ready to eat

Freezing allows the slices to be cut quickly and neatly, If you prefer the slices not to be so cold, simply leave at room temperature for 30 minutes before you enjoy.  Keep the slices in an airtight tub weather at room temperature or in the refrigerator, depending on your preference.

The slices should be mild enough for the whole family to enjoy, but if you are serving some sensitive palettes, reduce the chipotle pepper used to a half teaspoon. You can also add some candied chili peppers for an extra kick.
