Reviews for Applesauce Gelatin Squares
"This recipe bring back memories. My Mom used to make this every Christmas. She added red hots to the jello mix . They melt when the hot water is stirred in. I haven't had this for years until today and this was the first time I had ever made it. I just always watched my Mom make it Thanks for the memories."
"The first time I made this recipe, I reduced it to a smaller amount but it would not jell. I did leave it overnight in the fridge. As you can see, it is an easy recipe to reduce. So, I decided to make the entire recipe which I did yesterday. I left it in the fridge overnight and today it was perfectly jelled. These squares are delicious. I used sugar free strawberry jello and unsweetened applesauce and it was delicious. We do have quite a bit more to eat but I don't see a problem there. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor"
"This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I switch up the flavors of jello from time to time."
"I thought the taste was fine and refreshing, but so many people wouldn't even try it. Some of the people who did try it did not like it."
"recipe caught my curiosity and tried it within several days of printing it out. I used regular strawberry jello instead of the sugar-free to start. It was delicious. The applesauce took on a whole new taste. Can't wait to try different flavor jellos and the sugar-free for my Dad. It will be a beautiful compliment to our Christmas dinner this year."
"I HAVE to try this one!"
