I didn't like it at all. It tasted like a candle because of the red hots and applesauce mixed together. The texture was also quite weird. Read More

Wonderful recipe--made it for the family over the holidays twice! The second time the local stores were out of red hots so I had to use hard candy cinnamon discs-- they worked just as well! It surprised me but I was glad! Great recipe, thanks! Read More

This is my "sure thing" salad for potlucks. If I don't bring it people are disappointed. It is very "kid-friendly" but appeals to adults as well. My recipe is slightly different but easy to remember. I use one cup of boiling water 1 tablespoon of cinnamon candies 1 package of cherry Jello and 1 can (or the equivalent) of apple sauce. It can be doubled tripled...you get the idea! When people ask for the recipe the 1:1:1:1 ratio is easy for them to remember. Lately I've been making it with cinnamon oil like the kind that flavors hard candy and that's even easier. It takes a few drops per cup of water. Enjoy! Read More

This is the jello salad my mother-in-law made for at least 40 years and that I've been making for my husband every Christmas and Thanksgiving since I inherited his mom's binder of favorite recipes. He loves it (and the memories it brings) and now my grandchildren have fallen in love with it too. It goes great with turkey!! Read More

Simple quick & very tasty--makes a great snack! As suggested by another reviewer--it reminds you of candy apples. And the applesauce gives it a pleasing texture too. Read More

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find this recipe. I made this about 25 yrs. ago and lost the recipe when my storage unit was broken into and ALL of my wonderful recipe books were stolen. This was and will continue to be a HUGE family favorite. Read More

Could not be any easier. It was a huge hit. It is not however the most spectacular looking thing you could bring to an event. Just looks like a bowl of red jello. Read More
