"Easy applesauce recipe that uses the spicy cinnamon flavor of Red Hots®. The color is fun too! Your family will love it. Depending on the sweetness of the apples, consider adding less sugar or none at all. Enjoy right away or freeze for up to 6 months." — JenG

apples - peeled, cored, and chopped
cinnamon candies (such as Red Hots®)
Incredibly simple. I used Granny Smith apples. I actually threw everything in the crockpot right before bed, set it on low and it was ready to go in the morning. All I had to do is run the potato masher through it. Kids flipped for this--they thought bright red applesauce made with candy was amazing. I spread this over whole wheat pancakes and the kids raved about it all morning. Thumbs up from both of them.
Have made this for years. Looks good & tastes great. I prefer to leave the apples chunky & I omit the sugar. Best served cold, a great summer side dish.
