Applesauce and Red Hots – Blast from the Past

applesauce and red hots

This used to make a regular appearance on the supper table when I was growing up.

Raise your hand if you like Red Hots mixed in your applesauce.  {Raises hand, and jumps up and down}

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  1. Wow, I’ve never even heard of doing that, but man, it sounds good!

  2. Tiffany, I meant to share this the other day when you asked for apple recipes. It’s a recipe I found on the Kraft Foods website about 7 years ago, and have made a million times. It’s SO easy and SO yummy!
    Cinnamon Apple Snack Cake

    -1 cup sugar
    -1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
    -3 eggs
    -28 squares cinnamon graham crackers, finely crushed (about 2 cups crumbs)
    -1 medium apple, peeled, cored and diced
    -3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
    -powdered sugar

    Blend sugar, butter and eggs in a bowl with a spoon. Stir in graham cracker crumbs, apple and walnuts until blended.

    Spread batter into greased 8x8x2-inch baking pan.

    Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

    This recipe is so incredibly easy, I used to make it with my son and nieces when they were very young. They used to love when I’d put the graham crackers in a big ziplock bag, and let them go to town crushing them! Now that they’re all grown up, I use my food processor to get a nice, even crumb. I’ve also made this with plain graham crackers, which was just as yummy, or plain crackers with a tsp of cinnamon added to the batter. There’s no ‘wrong’ way to make it! 🙂

  3. I remember it as a treat/dessert but not here – neither applesauce nor red hots are available. Tickled a friend when I went to visit and I bought applesauce with cinnamon to eat during the week. Had forgotten red hots 🙂 Thanks for the reminder.

  4. Just stopping by to say that I gave you a blog award. Check it at Around My Family Table

    Have a great day!

  5. Ok, my kids really want to try that!

  6. I used to love red hots–can’t wait to try it and see how it tastes!
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
