These sweet and spicy pickles are great on a sandwich or all by themselves as a snack. The recipe is an easy way to dress up store-brought pickles and make them a special treat! —Myra Innes, Auburn, Kansas

"UPDATE: The longer you let them rest in the refrigerator, the more garlic-flavored they become. Very different after 2 weeks compared to one, unless you remove the garlic clove after the first week.

The only hard thing about this recipe is waiting a week for them to cure. I taped the jar closed to help me resist!
I made 1/5 of the recipe, using a 12 ounce jar of pickle slices and 3/4 cup of sugar, and repacking the pickles back into their original jar. To my taste, they could use more "fire" so I'll add more chile flakes or hotter hot sauce next time."

"Upped the heat a bit with more crushed red pepper flakes. My only complaint about this recipe is having to wait the week to enjoy them!"
