Tasty Snack Alert!

SNICKERS Salad.

That's right. I said Snickers Salad. Chocolate candy and salad. Yes, it is an oxymoron, but it is a DELICIOUS oxymoron. AND. On top of the deliciousness, it is SIMPLE and QUICK to make.

Tonight, is my "friends" Thanksgiving. For the last few years, a friend of mine has hosted a Thanksgiving for friends. It is so fun and refreshing and it is a nice little addition to actual Thanksgiving. No one said you only had to have Thanksgiving on one day a year and only with family. Right? So, my friend is all about taking care of all the main Thanksgiving staples and rarely wants a ton of help. Except for dessert. She asked me to bring my famous brownies...as I always am pleased to do. But, someone had this snickers salad at another event and I just had to make it also.

So, enjoy my first attempt at Snickers Salad.

This is what you will need:
4-5 Apples (Granny Smith or Mixed with other types if you prefer)
1/2 bag of grapes (green or red)
1 cup Walnuts or Pecans (chopped)
12 oz Cool Whip
1 small pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
12 (or more) Fun size Snickers (yay!)




Mix the Cool Whip and Pudding Mix together before adding remaining ingredients.




Chop up the apples and grapes.


Measure out the 1 cup of chopped nuts.


Time for the Snickers!


Chop up the Snickers. I started out chopping in thirds but switched to fourths. The fourths just seemed to be a better choice. Do what you like.


Now mix the apples, grapes, and nuts into the Cool Whip and pudding mix.


Now, add the Snickers! Mix well.


How easy was that? Now, sneak a bite for yourself. Yummy!!!! You can either serve immediately or chill until later.

Enjoy!!!

Keep on Keepin on.

I dunno Debbie. The ingredients are all well and good on their own, but together? I am skeptical.
