This Red Hot Jello Salad is a unique and interesting jello salad recipe that will satisfy both your sweet and spicy cravings. You might be wondering how good a spicy and sweet dessert recipe can be, but in this case its a hit. The recipe includes Red Hot candies which are hot and sweet with robust flavours of cinnamon and cayenne. Red Hots are a type of American candy that were originally called Cinnamon Imperials which is a generic name for a cinnamon candy. Originally made in the 1930s, these candies later went on to be called Red Hots, which is what we know them by today or Hot Tamales which is a similar type of candy, only made by a different company called Just Born. The candy has a hardened shell that coats a soft gummy inside, which makes them nice and chewy once you bite in. If you have ever had the pleasure of eating one of these candies before, you will know the satisfyingly intense rush of eating one of these spicy candies, and if you are brave, maybe you are able to take on two or more of these spicy candies at once.

Dessert recipes like this one are really easy to make and even easier to eat, making them perfect for any occasion. Kids would especially love this jello salad with all of the different layers of flavour and colour. The best jello recipes often include some whipped cream, which you can add to the top of this jello salad recipe for a little bit of decadence. The whipped cream on this jello salad will also help to calm the spiciness of the dessert and cool down your mouth from those Red Hot candies. There is even some apple sauce in this jello salad recipe which adds a bit of nutritional value because of apples being high in vitamin C and B6 as well as high in dietary fibre. You can purchase unsweetened apple sauce for this recipe since there is already quite a bit of sugar in it already, or, you can make your own apple sauce by boiling and mashing fresh, organic apples. and pureeing them with an immersion blender or a food processor. The jello flavour for this recipe is strawberry, which would pair quite well with the applesauce.

Jello salads were first introduced in the 1950s when convenience foods were becoming popular. People began adding jello to many recipes and there were even vegetable infused Jello packets as well. Jello is primarily made with gelatine, which is made with animal products, so if you are vegan, you will want to find an alternative. Luckily, there is a great plant based alternative to gelatine called Agar Agar, a type of seaweed that can be used as a powder and made into a gelatine like substance. People also use Agar powder to make an egg substitution which can be used in a variety of baking recipes. Agar powder could also be used to make jams and jellies as well.
