Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The first set I made were mushy, but that was because I boiled the apples too long. The first set I made were mushy, but that was because I boiled the apples too long. AS SOON as the jello begins to boil, bring the heat down to the lowest setting. I did it that way the second time and they came out perfect! I added fresh mint sprigs from my garden, served them warm with jello "sauce", and the smell and taste were WONDERFUL! The strawberry jello gave just a hint of sweet. I didn't get the jello to gel, though, but maybe that's because I left the pot out too long before putting it in the fridge? It's a very light taste, not overpowering, but not boring either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This recipe called for Granny Smith, MacIntosh or Golden Delicious apples. This recipe called for Granny Smith, MacIntosh or Golden Delicious apples. I used 4 very large golden delicious apples & they were boiled to mush within 5 minutes. The kids enjoyed the taste of it because it was like strawberry applesauce, but looked nothing like the picture. I would use Granny Smith & slow simmer them next time, also, it gave you no direction what to do with the two boxes of jello you are wasting. I poured it down the drain. Should I have added cold water & put it in the fridge to see if it would set up? Maybe next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family LOVED it! My family LOVED it! Even my 2 year old devowered her portion! I used Golden Delicious apples with Raspberry Jello as the Cranberry Jello is not available in our area until later in the fall. It was absolutely fabulous. The ease of this recipe is fantastic...tastes like you've worked for hours on it. And the apples are every bit as beautiful as they are in the picture. The color is very festive and bright. I also followed the suggestion of reserving the liquid, put it into dessert cups and with a dollop of whip cream, was heavenly and a very nice ready made dessert treat for later in the week. My husband said this would be perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas as a dessert or side dish...I agree 100%. This has now become one of my staple recipes. Thanks Kraft!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I served the apples cold. I served the apples cold. They looked fabulous and gave a great presentation...but the flavor was light. The apples tasted like plain poached pears. I used Melrose apples. So I experimented and used the jello they were cooked in as a sauce(It didn't jell well but thickened.) I had used one package flavored Strawberry Daquiri and one Stawberry. The addition of jello as sauce looked even better with the apples and they finally had some zip...especially since Cool Whip has no flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great and easy recipe. This is a great and easy recipe. I made it in the fall and paired it up with Pumpkin Icecream from Edy's, it was fantastic! My family loved it and let meknow they would eat it again any time. I also love the tip to save the jello that the apples steep in and let it set up. It was just as ggod as the apples in it's own way! Plus it is something I came make for my father who is on a low sodium diet. Thanks for the recipe keep 'em coming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this tasted really good. I thought this tasted really good. My Husband and I were both surprised at how well the strawberry flavor went with the apples. I also added a little pumpkin pie spice becuase it is one of my favorites to use. The apples i used got really soft though. They pretty much fell apart when i took them out. But it still tasted really good. I plan on trying again with a different type of apple and not cooking so long. Definitly a nice easy treat for the family, and could be really low in calories with sugar free jello and light cool whip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for dessert and it turned out pretty good. I made this for dessert and it turned out pretty good. I used braeburn apples, and they stayed in tact. No mushy-ness or applesauce. I also used sugar free jelo and lite cool whip, to save some calories and fat. However, the flavor wasn't very strong. I'm definitly going to make these again, but i think i'll use cranberry flavored jelo, to make the flavor stronger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for people at work. I made these for people at work. They were awesome. I used an apple corer which sliced the apples into small slices. I reduced the cook time by 5 minutes and served it over a bed of coolwhip. It was awesome. My mom made this with Sugar Free Jell-o and Sugar Free Cool Whip. There was no taste differance beleive it or not.
