apple snicker salad

One of my favorite things about summertime (that is, IF it ever warms up here...ha!) are BBQ's!!  We just had our first BBQ of the summer tonight!  We had such a fun time and the food was SO yummy! 

We were asked to bring a side dish...either a salad or dessert.  I made a dessert-salad!  But let's just pretend it's more salad than dessert, because heaven knows we (women) torture ourselves if we eat too much junk!!  Besides.... there ARE apples in it! ;)  Healthy apples! ;)  And we can't forget the protein.  Thank goodness for those snickers! ;)

Apple Snicker Salad
-small box instant french vanilla pudding
-1 cup milk
-8 oz cool whip
-2 to 3 granny smith apples (cut into cubes)
-1 pkg fun size snickers (about 19 in the bag)
Mix pudding and milk until smooth and then add the cool whip.  Chill mixture in the fridge for 30-60 minute.  (Can last up to 2 days in fridge)  Chop snickers into small pieces.  Then chop the apples.  Add to mixture just before serving.  Enjoy!

This is the easiest, most delicious side dish!  You MUST make this for your next BBQ, then let me know what you think!  Perfect idea for this weekend, right!? :)
Happy Memorial Day/weekend!

p.s.  It took me 4 different sections, plus Eric's help to eat that massive donut.  I'm weak.  Someday I'll be able to eat that monster in one sitting :)
p.p.s.  My comments aren't working... again.  If blogger ever fixes the problems I'll be doing some major catch up on comments ;)

Oh my goodness! I love that you posted this! A friend of mine made this at a Thanksgiving celebration a bunch of us who didn't go home for the holiday had out in LA and I had never heard of it, but she had it ever year growing up and it sounds odd, but it is delish! Yum!

1--this sounds AMAZING and not very much like a "salad," but yes, let's call it that! ;)

2--HOW did you guys stand in line for Tower of Terror and Eric NOT realize what was going to happen?? You can see and hear the people screaming when the doors open and they fall. hahaha!! PS--TERRIBLE wife move! ;)

C.Curley said...

Oh, and for those of your reading these comments and wondering "what is this crazy girl talking about? This post has nothing to do with Tower of Terror!" That's in response to a comment she left on my blog! :) Just thought I should clear that up! haha!

And.. I don't think I ever commented back to you about quiche? So sorry! Basically it's an egg and milk mixture that you bake inside of a pie crust. I like to put ham and cheese in mine, but you can put anything really! So yummy :)
