How many of you have had this Snickers Salad before? It is a definite favorite with our kids.
Of course, it always made me laugh every time I heard people talking about this salad, because Snickers and salad just don’t sound right together. But then I had some of the deliciousness, and I became a firm believer in dessert salads.
The creamy pudding and Cool Whip mixed with apple chunks and Snickers bars…now that’s the kind of salad I can get behind every night. That’s one way of having your apple a day, right?
The other day I bought more apples for school lunches and after school snacks. As much as the kids would like to have chocolate chip cookies and cream cookies every day, we have been trying to enforce more healthy options. I also picked up an extra bag of apples because I also wanted to make some muffins or bread too.
But then I wandered into the candy aisle at Walmart, and I had this crazy desire to put Snickers candy bars into said muffins or bread. Of course, a bag of those Snickers went into my cart in quite a hurry. What was that I said about eating more healthy snacks?
My husband just shakes his head in disbelief every time I come home with more candy. I realize I have issues if you are wondering. This time I was telling him about my crazy need to bake some apple bread with Snickers when he stopped me.
His suggestion was an apple cake with the Snickers salad on top as frosting. The more I thought about it, the better it sounded! Let me tell you people, he is a genius because this apple Snickers cake is simply to die for!! We won’t talk about how many pieces I may or may not have eaten…
