What a beautiful bright pink color this applesauce has! At first I didn't want to try this recipe - I was not interested in adding "sugar/candies" to a healthy desert. But then I realized I was probably going to add some sugar to a regular applesauce recipe. I liked this one - because I wanted the cinnamon taste, but not the brown color cinnamon lends to the apples. I (surprisingly)couldn't find red hots - so I used a big box of Hot Tamales. I used a whole Fruit Punch Juice box instead of the cranberry cocktail, and I peeled the apples. I cooked it on medium-low for about 1/2 hour-45 minutes.
