Red-Hot Molded Hearts Recipe

This cool salad gets a bit of "warmth" from melted cinnamon candies. Stirred into strawberry gelatin, the applesauce picks up a rosy hue and molds wonderfully. —Kay Curtis, Guthrie, Oklahoma

"The recipe did not make a mold. It came out more like applesauce with a strawberry cinnamon flavor. Good but it was nothing like jello. Flavored apple sauce is more so what it was. It looked nothing like the picture."
