Ingredients

  • 2-1/2

    cups Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar, divided

  • 1-1/3

    cups applesauce

  • 2

    packages (3 ounces each) red or green gelatin

  • 2

    envelopes unflavored gelatin

  • 1

    teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

• In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, applesauce, red or green gelatin, unflavored gelatin and lemon juice; let stand for 1 minute. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Immediately pour into a cold 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. • With a spatula, loosen gelatin from sides of pan. To remove, invert onto waxed paper. Using kitchen scissors or small sharp cookie cutters dipped on hot water, cut into 1-in. squares or shapes. • Place on waxed paper. Dry at room temperature for about 8 hours or until slightly sticky. Roll in remaining sugar. Store in an airtight container. Yield: About 1-3/4 pounds.
