This is absolutely delicious! I actually had this on Thanksgiving for the first time and couldn't quit eating it. It takes about five minutes to whip up and your house smells fabulous while doing so. It's just the right amount of cinnamon. In reading the previous reviews a few people have commented on the texture...ironically enough the texture is one of the things I enjoyed most about this recipe. It actually feels as though it has some body unlike plain Jello dishes. Five stars for me without a doubt! Read More

I thought this was ok. Others said they liked it and said it was delicious but most of it was still left at the end of the dinner. Read More

Thanks for the comments. This is not a Jell-O to be eaten on it's own. This is definitely a great complement to a ham which is the only time I make this. My husband is not a big fan either but I can't seem to eat ham without it anymore! Read More

So when I made this I used two boxes of pineapple gelatin mix. I used 1 cup of red hots which I melted into 2 cups of boiling water that I then mixed into the gelatin, and added 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened applesauce mixing it throughly. Then I added 2 cups of cold water and put it into the fridge to set which made it taste more like a jello than a dessert, and it wasn’t as overly sweet but it just turned out perfect. Read More

This is been a tradition in our family for years but we use sugar free jello and like a bit more bite so I use a cup of red hots. I hate sugar free jello but in this recipe it is awesome. Read More

I've made this before however this time I decided to follow the recipe and only use one cup of water. I would have to call that a mistake make the jello according to package directions with your water. (Two cups of water) it dilutes the flavor just the tiniest it and makes the final product actually edible. I personally think it sets up better too! Read More

Loved it last year but some comments about it being too sweet. Used unsweetened apple sauce and it was perfect. Repeat requests for this treat. Read More
