My family’s favorite jello salad for any occasion:
RED HOT APPLESAUCE JELLO
½ c. cinnamon red hot candies
1 (3 oz) package cherry gelatin
1 c. water 2 c. applesauce
Dissolve cinnamon candies in water in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix in gelatin and allow to dissolve; remove from heat and stir applesauce into mixture. Pour into a serving dish and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
Although I made this recipe dozens of times, I got this recipe thanks to http://allrecipes.com/recipe/229387/red-hot-applesauce-jell-o/
