Caramel Apple Snickers Salad

Do you love caramel apples with peanuts? Oh, and a little chocolate? Oh, and some cool whippy pudding? Yes, yes, and yes? Great! This little concoction of a "salad" is very awesome, and very easy. This was the third super easy and simple recipe that I tried on Memorial Day. The other two were Feta Dip and Grilled Asparagus. Both were delicious. Today's bit of deliciousness is a dessert. A friend up north often makes a version of this for get togethers. The other day I found out why. It's super easy.

Again, no foodie pics were taken on Memorial Day, therefore the pics you see are not mine, but there is a link back to their original source. This recipe is from Lindsay at her Potpourri Mommy blog. Please show her some love for the amazing recipe. My notes are in blue text.

Caramel Apple Snickers Salad

* 3 apples (I used four apples and a mixture of sweet and slightly tart)
* 12 fun size Snickers or 6 full size Snickers (I scoured the house for more…use more)
* 1 cup milk
* 1 large package vanilla instant pudding (not made)
* 1 16 oz. Cool Whip (I like a little less cool whip in mine) (it's a lot of whip, maybe that's why I added extra apples and snickers)

Mix milk and pudding in a large bowl.  Add cool whip.  Cut the Snickers and apples into small pieces and add to the mixture.  

This dessert is best if you make it close to when it is being served.  I wouldn't recommend making it the night before. (the apples add too much moisture to serve the following day. Definitely a make and eat the same day dish. A couple of hours ahead is good, as it gives the pudding and cool whip time to set a bit.)

I happened to have shaved chocolate on hand, so I use it as a garnish. Very pretty. The dessert is easy, quick, no-bake, and delicious. Another keeper.

Thanks for visiting. Now go tend to your garden.

Grilled Asparagus

 Great Grilled Asparagus

It's that time of year. There is an abundance of fresh asparagus to be had. If you like asparagus, this probably makes you very happy. It makes me happy too.

Feta Dip

Morning all. I know it's been a while, but we've been busy, busy, busy. Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day!! Mine? It was wonderful, but not so relaxing to begin with.  Hubby and I had lots of family and friends over for a BBQ/Cook out. And the difference between the 2 is what?………….Well, that was not a retorhical question, I was waiting for an answer. Oh well. That's what the Internet is for, information.
