If you’re craving something rich and sinful for Valentine’s Day, look no further than my Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. If, on the other hand, you need a little something festive to brighten up your Valentine’s Day supper, a nice red salad will do the trick. One of our favorites is Strawberry Pretzel Salad. The other is this tasty, simple salad made special with the combination of only 5 ingredients.
Red Hot Applesauce Salad
- heaping 1/3 cup Red Hot cinnamon candies
- 1 cup water
- 1 small box red gelatin (cherry, strawberry, raspberry all work fine)
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- whipped topping, optional
Combine candy and water in a small saucepan. Heat until boiling, dissolving the candy. Add gelatin. Dissolve. Add applesauce; mix well. Pour in an 8×8 (or similar small size) dish. Refrigerate until set. Top individual servings with whipped topping, or spread whipped topping over all. Easily doubled for a 9×13 pan.
