BEAT THE HEAT WITH A SWEET TREAT!

I don’t know about you, but the heat and humidity are making me crave crisp fall weather and the delicious apples that come with it! I had drafted a blog post focused on building margin into our daily schedules, but I think I’ll save that for another time. Sharing a favorite family summer recipe seemed more appropriate (and fun)!

 

I was introduced to Snickers Apple Salad at a family reunion years ago in Wisconsin. I FLIPPED for it and to this day it’s my favorite picnic potluck dish! Don’t be turned off by the “salad” in the recipe’s title – it’s more of a dessert. Trust me, you’ll be the hit of the party if you bring this along!

 

SNICKERS APPLE SALAD

 

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (can be halved too, if you find it too sweet!)
  • 1 (12-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
  • 6 Snickers candy bars (I like Snickers, so I always add more)
  • 4 -6 combination of granny smith and red delicious apples
  • A drizzle of caramel ice cream topping for pretty presentation (optional)

 

Directions

  1. Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until thoroughly blended. Fold in Cool Whip.
  2. Cut Snickers into bite size chunks and add to cream cheese mixture.
  3. Chop the apples into chunks and stir.
  4. Chill 1 hour before serving. (Don’t make this too far in advance or you will get a runny salad.)
  5. If you want, you can drizzle caramel ice cream topping on it right before serving!
