Applesauce Raspberry Jello

This Applesauce Raspberry Jello recipe has been around a long time. I added a few options in presentation this time around including the parfait version above. You can use a parfait presentation or a simple square pan presentation to enjoy this easy dessert or side salad dish.
Applesauce-Raspberry Jello


  • 1 – 3oz. pkg. raspberry jello
    1 – Cup hot water
    1 – 10-oz. pkg. frozen raspberries
    1 – Cup applesauce
    1 – Cup sour cream
    1 – Cup miniature marshmallows
  1. Dissolve Jello in hot water.
  2. Add frozen raspberries and blend carefully.
  3. Add applesauce and blend gently.
  4. Pour into 9-inch square pan.
  5. Chill until set.
  6. Combine sour cream and marshmallows and spread over top of set Jello.
  7. Cover and Chill.
  8. Serves 6-8.

If you want to present this dish in an individual parfait glass do not spread the sour cream mixture on top of the set jello. Keep it separate and layer the ingredients.

I have doubled this recipe and put it in a 9 x 13 pan. It’s a refreshingly cool salad!
If you aren’t fond of marshmallows omit them and add a tablespoon or two of sugar to your sour cream.

You can also just put a dollop of the sour cream mixture on top of the jello squares instead of spreading the topping completely over the jello.

It’s fun to transform a simple recipe with an eye catching presentation.

Thanksgiving decorations are put away and today I’ll ask our sons to get down all the Christmas bins which require a ladder. Not promising the bins will get emptied but at least they will be where I can get to them easily in the next several days to empty. Time for me to pull out our Christmas CD’s. I’m aging myself and not apologizing. CD’s are very much appreciated at our country bungalow.

Katie and Andrew decided to make the drive for home today with Willow their cat (there will be a Willow post, soon) since there are some snow forecasts that show significant snowfall in the mountain passes later on Saturday and into Sunday. The rest of us will carry on with activities after they hit the road. The girls are going to paint signs and the guys might be pushing around some snow, after they get those bins down for me.

  1. It is good to have strong young men around to bring in the heavy things that seem to get heavier every year. I had the boys bring in all my boxes from the shed on Thursday.

  2. I highly approve of strong young men around to help with the heavy lifting and snow shoveling. Tall Boy now qualifies (at 6 ft tall!)
    Wishing Katie and Andrew a safe drive home.

  3. Having help to pull down the boxes is a wonderful thing. We’ve set out the Advent candles and the nativity set with a few lights, but will wait for more decorating in the days to come.

  4. Glad you had a good thanksgiving and that desert recipe sounds very tasty. Glad you have the family around to give you a hand. I’m looking forward to hearing all about Willow.

  5. Your parfait dish looks so good and pretty as well, Ellen. Hopefully my guys will soon bring in the boxes of ornaments to decorate our artificial tree. I enjoyed seeing the snow photos of your home. I imagine it’s all cleared for you to get around by now.

  6. I like this! Can’t say I have ever seen this recipe before with applesauce in the raspberry jello layer. I love anything raspberry…seeds and all!

    I’m playing Christmas CD’s as well these days…all our favorite oldies.
