Snicker Salad

Yesterday, as I was rambling on and on about my White Lasagna (which got many great reviews, thanks!), I had multiple people mention the white square plates I served it on.

I received that set for a wedding gift back when we got married in 2006. It is not the set we use for everyday use, I consider them a little nicer, so frankly I only get them out when we have company (or I need a nice picture!).

I'm not sure if they are still in stock, but they are from the Younkers department store, which I'm pretty sure is just a Midwest chain. I did find this one, somewhat similar, one sale for $5.24!
Today, I thought I'd share one of the over-the-top-indulgent salads we had at our Mother's Day barbecue on Sunday. My sister made it, and I'm sure most of you have had it, but I'm guessing there are still some folks out there that haven't had Snicker Salad. Beware - it is not healthy!

It's technically a fruit salad, but has chopped up Snickers bars in it....so I would consider it more of a dessert. A good dessert. An, I-can't-stop-eating-this-dessert.

Only serve it at parties, as if it sits in your fridge, you'll get fat really, really fast.


Snicker Salad
8 oz. instant vanilla pudding
1 c. milk
3-4 granny smith apples, chopped
4 Snickers bars, chopped
16 oz. Cool Whip

Mix pudding packet with milk, and whisk until combined. Add apples and Snickers bars. Fold in Cool Whip. Let sit in fridge for at least an hour before serving to get chilled.

I'll be out the rest of the day today and back later on Friday...but stay tuned, it's GIVEAWAY time!

  12. Oh my gosh this is one my favorite "salads" from my childhood!! I think it might be a Midwestern thing because when I did a recipe search a few weeks ago for it the closest I found was from Iowa Girl Eats! I'm making this soon for sure!
