Hello friends! I’m so glad you all liked my little ‘weekend recap’ yesterday! It was fun putting it together. I’m thrilled it was well received. Look for more of those every week.

Today I have a super easy, healthy, and delicious treat to share with you. I discovered this little gem of a recipe over the weekend from my Aunt Mary who made them as a little snack. Thanks Aunt Mary! I assume some of you have heard about these before. I did a little internet research and its seems the recipe has been around for a while.

But for those of you who are new to these, may I introduce Jazzy Jello Apple Slices.

Basically, these are apple slices sprinkled with Sugar Free Jello Mix. That’s it. But let me tell you, it makes a boring apple really tasty and unique!

Here’s how they come together. Cut up about three medium sized apples. I used Macintosh and I choose to leave the skin on.

Put your apple slices in a baggie.

Sprinkle in an entire pack of Sugar Free Jello Mix. I would assume you can use regular Jello mix, but that would make them a little less healthy.

I made black cherry and strawberry.

After that, shake your apples in the bag until the Jello mix is evenly distributed. Toss them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes and you are done!

Beautiful and delicious apple slices ready for snacking!

As an added bonus, the Jello mix will prevent the apples from turning brown. Love that!

Not only are these delicious, but I think they would also make a very unique cocktail garnish or fruit tray garnish. Totally different and unexpected!

What do you think? Have you seen this done before? Will you give them a try?

    Michael, they used to serve these to us in the cafeteria at QW when we were younger! I loved them then, and never gave them another thought until I saw your post! Thank you for the reminder…I know what I’ll be picking up at the grocery store this week!

    What do your fingers look like after touching them?

  • Elaine B. at

    Love that idea. We do it with grapes now and then, but have never thought to do it with apples. Will have to try!

    Just tried these and they were simple and amazing! In answer to another person’s question about the fingers….they do not stain the fingers too badly. The gelatin does resemble caviar on the apple and it crumbles off, so make sure the kids eat it over a plate. I used strawberry and it was delicious..I’m curious to try other flavors!

    This is almost a year too late, but I just ran across your post… thank you for writing this! It made me so nostalgic, & I’d totally forgotten about this snack. My mom used to make these & popcorn for movie night munchies. 🙂

      And thanks for the comment! I actually forgot about these little guys. I may have to make some again.

      xo Michael

    Only a few years later, lol. This is brilliant!! I’ve never heard of this jello-fruit concoction. I bet it would be great with other fruits like pineapple or peaches, MMMMM (or grapes like Elaine B said)!!! Thank you for this!
