Red Hot Applesauce Jello Dessert

By: Greta Brinkley from
Updated January 25, 2021

"Red Hot Applesauce Jello. If you’re old-school, your mouth is probably already watering. If you’re a bit younger, I can almost hear asking what the heck this concoction I speak of is. It’s one of those classic recipes that everyone made in the 1950s and 1960s, but that seems to have been forgotten about. The first thing you need to know about it is that it’s delicious. The second thing you need to know is that it’s easy to make. It doesn’t get much better than that. "
