I used sugar-free jello and it turned out great!

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.

I used sugar-free jello and it turned out great!

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 s...

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 ...

If you like candied apples, you will love this salad! This recipe was excellent - no changes were made. Thanks, Bee!

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 reci...

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.

I love this stuff. My mom always made it for us when we were kids. It is also great with out the red hots.

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....

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.
