potluck gold

i know a lot of folks are celebrating the 4th this weekend, with fish fries and campouts.  we had a family BBQ to go to today, so i whipped up a potluck favorite and wanted to share! 

candy apple salad:

super easy and kid friendly.  my only warnings are this:

1.  label your dish.  it looks a bit like potato salad after it gets stirred, and so people may not know what it is!
2. don't freeze your snicker bars first.  you don't want aunt edna breaking a tooth.
3. unless you have a lot of self control, you may need to buy extra snickers so enough ends up in the dessert.  i tend to nibble them up while chopping.  those little pieces are calorie free, right?

for mine today i used:

a large box of vanilla pudding, 3 c. milk, an 8 oz. tub of cool whip (but should have used 16) 18  17 16 fun size snickers, about 9 med. apples, and 1/2 c. caramel sauce.  mix pudding & milk, let sit 2 minutes to firm, fold in cool whip, peeled chopped apples and chopped candy bars.  drizzle with caramel.  chill until serving time.

need another side dish?  we love this cole slaw recipe.  happy weekend everyone!

What a sinful dish---naughty Tammie!

P.S. I would die for a sample,just a taste test like on those cooking shows where the food is "tested" and approved/not approved:)
