Cinnamon Jello Salad

This recipe originates with my dear Grandma Cowley!!!  If you know my grandma, you know what an amazing cook she is.  She's passed down MANY recipes and I LOVE it!  This particular salad is VERY cinnamony, and the ingredients don't look like they'd go together, but OH MY!  TRUST ME on this!  It's DELIGHTFUL!  Try it once! :)  You'll be making it again!  Great served with "beefy" things.

1 lg box Cherry Jello
3 c boiling water
1 c Red Hot Cinnamon Candies (Brach's are the common name brand)
2 c applesauce

Boil your water.  Pour over cherry jello mix.  Stir continuously while it dissolves then add the candies.  Continue stirring until your candies have completely dissolved.  It will take about 10 minutes of constant stirring!!!  When they are all dissolved, add the applesauce and stir until mixed.  Pour into your pan.  Put immediately into the fridge.  This is better if left overnight in the fridge.  It takes longer than normal jello salad to set up!  So I HIGHLY recommend you make this the day before you plan to serve.  I usually plate over some fresh green leaf (NOT ICEBURG) lettuce and it's SO BEAUTIFUL!
