Snickers Carmel Apple Salad


Yes, you read that right!


I am revealing the deep dark secret I have been hiding (that was for you Foursons).


It is the legendary Snickers Carmel Apple Salad.


Actually, this is my cousin's recipe and she reads this blog and I am now fearing that I have the name of the recipe wrong. It really doesn't matter because it is SOOOOO YUMMY!


Ingredients


8 Granny Smith Apples (cored, peeled and diced)

16 oz. of Cool Whip

5 oz. package of Vanilla JELL-O pudding

6 Snickers Bars


Thaw Cool Whip and mix with Vanilla Pudding. Take diced apples and fold into the Cool Whip mixture. Cut Snicker Bars into small pieces and stir into apple mixture. Sprinkle any left over chocolate on your cutting board onto mixture as a pretty garnish. You may also put carmel sauce on the top for added flair. Hottie Husband came up with that.


Have I ever told you that he won the cooking award in high school? At the same banquet, he also won MVP of the football team! You can imagine the razzing he got from his buddies.


And just because I am having so much fun with my camera, here are some photos.

It says Snickers on the other side.

Ummm, do you get what they mean?

I needed a little help from Hottie Husband.

It was late and I hadn't slept much.

Okay fine, I'll quit with the excuses, I just didn't get it.

So you have an idea of what size to cut the apple into.

I usually put some lemon on the apples just to keep them from getting brown. Of course, this also works on bananas and avocados.

I sliced the Snicker bars like this and then cut these pieces in half.

I wish I could give you a bite right now!

Oh. My. GOSH! That looks so darn good. I could probably eat the whole thing by myself! Even if I do want to try this recipe, I am going to refrain... it doesn't fit well with trying to get back into shape... but once I do, you can be sure I'm going to pull this recipe out! :)

**DROOL** Wow! I never though I'd see the words Snickers and salad put together, but this looks delicious! I LOVE snickers, and now I have an excuse to eat a whole bunch, by pairing it with apples. Thanks for sharing!

i think it's a bit rude of you to share considering we don't have cool whip in germany and now i can't make it ;). it sounds so yummy!

DM said...

I can't wait to try this! I am going to call my husband right now and have him stop at the store on the way home to pick up the ingredients. And I love that it's a "salad" which obviously means it's healthy and low-calorie.

Thank you to you and your cousin...I'm going to have to make this for the hubby because he LOVES snickers and apples...so the combination of the two has got to be pretty good. I'm saving the recipe now.
