This recipe will yield six 1/2 cup servings.  It is adapted from a recipe my grandma made from an old Jello box:


  • 1 1/2 cups of boiling water
  • 1 cup Red Hots candies

  • 1 cup chilled Sprite (or 7-Up)
  • Garnish: Cool Whip and red hots


1.  Bring water to a boil in pan.
2.  Add the red hot candies. Reduce heat to low and stir until dissolved.
3.   Add the box of jello and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat.
4.   Add the applesauce and Sprite and stir to distribute.
5.   Pour jello mixture into serving glasses and cover with plastic wrap.
