A Valentine Recipe – Applesauce Jell-O

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite recipes that my mom would make was Applesauce Jell-O.

It was just the thing that made me feel better when I was sick, cheered me up when I was sad, and tasted really great alongside those chicken patties we ate so many of. :-)

Now I make it for our Happy Home and I can’t even tell you how much the Happy Hubby loves it.

Applesauce Jell-O couldn’t be easier to make, but the 4 hour chill time might drive you crazy as you wait for its deliciousness!

  1. I do something similar except I melt about 1/4 cup of red hots in the water as it comes to a boil then add the jello, stir to melt and the applesauce. Give it a little more red color and a bit of zing in the taste.

  2. This looks delicious! I’m going to try it soon!

    Also, for an upcoming Daddy-Daughter Valentine’s dinner and dance at my church for girls ages 8-12, I am using your paper plate game! Although, I tweaked it for Valentine’s! I think it’s going to be a hit Thanks for the awesome ideas, keep ’em coming!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe — it brought back some yummy memories!!! (My mom made this for us when I was growing up, too!) I’ll definitely be making it for my family next week! Happy Valentine’s Day!!! :)
