  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ¾ cup Mott's® Natural Applesauce

  • 1 (3 ounce) package pineapple-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O®)

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin

  • 3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice

  • ¾ teaspoon coconut extract

  • ½ cup granulated sugar for coating


  1. Spray an 8x8-inch baking dish with non-fat cooking spray. Place dish in refrigerator.

  2. Combine granulated sugar, applesauce, pineapple-flavored gelatin, unflavored gelatin, lime juice, and coconut extract in saucepan.

  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for about 1 minute. Remove saucepan from heat, and cool at room temperature for about 10 minutes. (Do not pour boiling hot liquid into a chilled glass dish.)

  4. Remove baking dish from refrigerator, and pour warm mixture into the cooled baking dish. Refrigerate until firm, 1 to 2 hours.

  5. When firm, remove from refrigerator, lift one side with a spatula, and turn out onto a cutting board or parchment paper sprinkled with granulated sugar.

  6. Using a sharp knife, cut gelatin into squares or use a small cookie cutter for decorative shapes. Coat the jellies on all sides with sugar. Place on a rack, and allow to dry overnight.

  7. Store in an airtight container.

Cook's Note:

If you want a thicker piece of candy, use a smaller baking dish
