My cousin Dave brings this to our annual family cookout. If you can't find Red Hots, grab a jar of cinnamon applesauce instead. —Josh Hoppert, Cudahy, Wisconsin

- 2 cups boiling water
- 1/4 cup Red Hots, crushed
- 2 packages (3 ounces each) strawberry gelatin

This was simple to put together and had a pleasant cinnamon taste. I topped each serving with whipped cream and fresh blueberries for a red, white and blue Memorial Day dessert. Family and guests enjoyed it!
