Tasty Attempts: Snickers Salad

Last year I had started posting What's For Dinner. While I really enjoyed those posts, it was hard to keep up with a weekly post, especially since Munchkin is getting a little more picky about his diet and we are having a lot of repeat meals (sometimes the same thing several times a week). I still wanted to keep posting tasty recipes but include a little more variety (like the appetizers and desserts that I make for various parties). So I am now posting Tasty Attempts every other Tuesday. The posts will include a variety of recipes, maybe some of them turn out tasty, maybe others are failed attempts.
That's correct, you read that right, it says Snickers Salad! As some of you have read we had a pretty rough couple of weeks earlier this month and end of last month. So I was feeling the need for some good comfort food. I haven't had Snickers Salad since last time I was really homesick years ago. This was something my mom used to make when I was a kid, especially in the summer. 
So I know that doesn't look all that appetizing but it is delicious and simple to make. Granted it really isn't healthy but it makes a nice treat once in a while.
So here is how to make it:
Dice up some apples (I buy the pre-sliced and treated for browning for Munchkin's lunches but if you don't you just need to soak your apple chunks in some water with a little lemon juice, or dissolved vitamin C tablets). Then dice up some snickers bars into bite sized pieces. Last mix it all up in a tub of cool whip and enjoy (it is best if you let it chill in the fridge for an hour but who is waiting that long).


  1. And I just started my diet again. Dang it! That looks tasty!

    1. Haha this would definitely throw that diet off! It is a nice thing to bring to summer BBQs though, simple to make and it goes quick.
