How to make it

  • Since you can do this anyway YOU want, this is just how we have always done it.
  • Combine JellO and Applesauce - general rule is 1 C applesauce to 1 box dry JellO - use as many or as few flavors as you like; we usually do a red and a green color.
  • Prepare vanilla pudding according to box instructions.
  • Assembly:
  • Lay down a base of graham crackers.
  • Spread a layer of applesauce mixture down.
  • Put down another layer of graham crackers - this time changing the direction you lay them. Doing this with each layer of crackers helps keep the cake stable.
  • Next a layer of vanilla pudding.
  • Then another layer of graham crackers.
  • Keep layering like this, ending with a layer of graham crackers on top.
  • Chill for at least one hour.
  • "Frost" with Cool Whip.
  • We've always made this in advance so that the graham crackers got nice and soft. It made the flavors amazing together and makes for easier cutting too!
  • ***To make it low-cal/diabetic friendly:
  • Simply substitute all ingredients as sugar free or light!!

    That's all! No water :) Mix the dry jello directly into the applesauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as we always have! Thanks!
